British actor, Idris Elba is the cover star of Essence Magazine’s August 2017 Issue in all of his shirtless glory.
Idris Elba talks to Essence about his upcoming films, tight schedule, and love life.
He is set to star in six projects this year – including Thor: Ragnarok and the fifth season of Luther.
On his Directorial debut film-Yardie: “Yardie is quite a semi-famous bit of English literature about a small-time pastor, who comes from Jamaica and ends up embroiled in (avenging his brother’s death). It’s set in the late seventies, early eighties, a hotbed of Jamaican culture in London, but then crack cocaine arrives.”
On love and marriage: “Am I ever gonna get remarried? I don’t think so. Yeah, I don’t think so. Marriage is an institution of sorts. And I’ve done it. It’s not for everybody. It’s not my life’s calling.”
