Actor Idris Elba has revealed that there was a time when he did not have a roof over his head. Idrissa Akuna Elba is an English actor, musician and DJ. Idris Elba faced homelessness once. He is known for playing the narcotrafficker Stringer Bell in the HBO series The Wire Detective John Luther on the BBC One series Luther, and Nelson Mandela in the biographical film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom (2013). He has been nominated four times for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Miniseries or Television Film, winning one, and was nominated five times for a Primetime Emmy Award.
The 44-year-old actor said he had to find a place to spend the night as he did not have anywhere to put up, reported Contactmusic.“I faced homelessness once, and it just seems bizarre that young people are getting into this perpetual cycle. “This is England, Great Britain, we shouldn’t be facing that,” Elba told TimeOut magazine. “The Dark Tower” actor’s comment comes after he appeared at the Shelter benefit with rapper Skepta. “I’ve got a passion and I turned up to say: ‘Skepta’s here, support the cause’,” Elba added.
