Naparima Bowl (2013)
British actor Idris Elba may be
best known as an enterprising
Baltimore drug lord on the HBO
series The Wire, but he has a
growing presence in sci-fi films
and will play South African anti-
apartheid icon Nelson Mandela
in his first biopic.
Elba, who starred in 2011 s
action-adventure Thor and 2012
sci-fi film Prometheus, will next
be seen as a general in Guillermo
del Toro s epic sci-fi disaster film
Pacific Rim, out in US theaters
The London-born actor will star
alongside Charlie Hunnam, Rinko
Kikuchi, Charlie Day and Ron Perl-
man in the film about a battle
between giant alien monsters who
ravage Earth and giant man-made
robots known as Jaegers.
Elba, 40, talked to Reuters about
working with Del Toro, portraying
Mandela and how music features
into his career.
Q: What drew you to the char-
acter of Stacker Pentecost in
A: (Del Toro) has got a real big
imagination. He is a kid in a man s
body that has been given all these
visual toys to bring his imagination
to life. When you look at Pan s
Labyrinth, which is so delicate and
so provoking...for me, it was being
able to work with a master film-
maker like him.
Q: Del Toro said he put the cast
through their paces in the giant
Jaeger simulators. How grueling
were those scenes?
A: It was just very tough to have
to be put in the big massive sim-
ulator all day long...it was really,
really tough. In actuality, if there
was a real Jaeger program...we
would all be the most qualified to
Q: For this film, Del Toro said
he specifically chose to cast actors
more known more for their cult
TV shows than film. What do you
think of his choice of actors?
A: The days of movie stars, so
to speak, is just behind us. What
is a movie star? We ve got people
on the Internet that are bigger than
television stars. I think the land-
scape is changing a little bit ...
Before there were movie stars.
There were people who were just
actors and they said their lines and
they became movie stars because
people liked them. For me, I think
that s the healthy way to make
Q: You play Nelson Mandela in
the upcoming film Mandela: Long
Walk to Freedom. What did the
role mean to you and did you
meet Mandela when preparing?
A: It meant so much to me, it s
such a massive opportunity to be
part of a true legend s life, and
more importantly, the film re-edu-
cates people on this legend. I never
met Mr Mandela because he was
very ill, so our interpretation of
him was without his personal
influence. But the script is such a
good script, and obviously it comes
from his book, and the book speaks
Q: Did you feel any pressure in
A: This is the first real biopic
I ve done, and there s no real dif-
ference in the process, but it s Mr
Mandela. So that s huge, everyone
knows who he is and what he
sounds like, and I look nothing like
him. If I get judged, which I will,
about my performance or how I
sound or how I look, I think people
miss the point. The point is that
this is called Long Walk to Free-
dom, this is the book about his
life and it s his own words.
Q: How do you want people to
remember Mandela from the
A: That he s a man. He s a
human being. I think we forget
that, that he is human.
Q: You have a music career on
the side as DJ Big Driis. You put
out your own EP (extended play
recording) and featured in Jay Z s
2007 album American Gangster.
What does music mean to you?
A: My music stuff is always a
part. What it s become for me
recently is that it s a reset between
to kind of remember who...I am.
It s really the one point of my life
that I get to be creative without
any pressure. (Reuters)
