Even though everyone wants to see Idris Elba as James Bond, he is just an everyday guy. He says that even though he plays quick-thinking shooters on screen, he was very close to dying recently when he defended a woman from her angry partner. The man who plays “Luther” was scared by the story.
Idris Elba is a gentleman, and when the event happened, he was just trying to protect a beautiful woman. In a recent interview, he said, “I almost died when I tried to stop a man from threatening his woman outside of a bar. Elba was just trying to make the man feel better by saying, “Look at how beautiful she is.
Why would you talk to this beautiful princess in that way? “You’re talking about my girl?” yelled the angry man as he pulled out a gun and pointed it at Elba. Elba soon saw that he had made a mistake and that the man thought he was trying to steal his girl instead of protecting her.
“He thought I was interested in her in a sexual way. I remember thinking very clearly, “Don’t play talks that way… What are the results? Elba thinks. In the Apple TV+ show Hijack, where he played Sam Nelson, the actor probably still felt like himself.

In the TV show, Elba plays a regular guy who turns into a crime fighter on a flight from Dubai to London. He has seven hours to protect the plane from any attackers who try to take over. As the summer season ends in the next few weeks, the show is getting more and more famous.
Elba is now on strike, just like the rest of Hollywood, to fight for fair pay for actors. He hasn’t been actively promoting the show outside of social media. His most recent post was a message of support for other artists. Elba is also a well-known DJ, but he will think twice before getting involved in another fight in the club.
