Idris Elba says he’s just a guy trying to be an actor. A modest statement, after all he has received many awards. His “toughest role” didn’t get him the film industry, but the “People” magazine.

Idris Elba doesn’t think he’s that great – at least not in photos. The “Luther” star was voted “Sexiest Man Alive” in 2018 and that was his “toughest role ever,” explained Elba.

He still remembered the associated shoot: “I said to the photographer: ‘I don’t always look good in photos, this picture has to be great.'” He replied: “‘No, no, no. We already have one Done a million times, we know how to do it.’ And I said, ‘Ok, I’ll just be me.'” Then they would have used his favorite camera angle for the cover.

Elba: “Just a guy trying to be an actor”

The 50-year-old has been in the acting industry for years. He has received numerous awards and has appeared in various Hollywood films in addition to the enormously successful BBC series “Luther”. Still, Elba tells that he’s still surprised when he’s recognized.

“I don’t assume everyone knows who I am, even though I’ve been acting for a long time,” said the Briton. “When I look in the mirror, all I see is a guy who tried to be an actor. So when I go to a restaurant in the middle of Belgium, I don’t expect everyone to recognize me.”

Idris Elba should be the new Bond

In fact, the actor has been touted as the next 007 for some time. Idris Elba has repeatedly denied rumors that he could be the next James Bond. Elba said he wasn’t even close to the role after Daniel Craig (55) left the franchise. “It’s a compliment and an honor – but there’s no truth to it.”

Instead, the Briton has been in “Luther: The Fallen Sun” on the Netflix streaming platform since March 10th. In the film sequel to the series, he slips back into the role of London Detective Chief Inspector John Luther.
