Star of forthcoming film, NO GOOD DEED, UK-native Actor IDRIS ELBA covers the new issue of ROLLING OUT !!!
Here are some interview highlight:
What he’s found most challenging playing this character?
“I don’t like the violence, as much … it’s difficult beating a woman [and] being in a fight with a woman. But, Taraji got some punches in once or twice,” he says laughingly.
One person who didn’t find Elba threatening at all is Mirage Moonschein, 8, a young actress hailing form Daleville, Alabama. She played Terry’s daughter Ryan in the film and was at ease throughout, even when she was in the hands of the maniacal Colin.
Colin displayed a really gentle side in the film with Terry’s children.
What is fatherhood like for Elba in real life?
“I love, love children. I love being a dad; it’s one of the joys of life. In fact, you can take it all away from me tomorrow, but don’t take away my children,” he says. Aww!
He continues, “That little young girl [Mirage] was such a great little actress. She was also great to work with.”
The perception he wants his kids to have of him …
“I just hope my children grow up saying my dad was my good friend and supporter … I was fair and just, helped them whenever they needed me to. And, that there was love. One thing I am very aware is that I love them and I love to embrace my children. My children know what it is to have a hug and a kiss, be cuddled and feel comfortable. My parents were not cuddlers or kissers, but I am,” he laughs.
