Although he usually portrays the dramatic character onscreen, Idris Elba has a funny side that his daughter often sees. The actor was recently seen showing off his humorous side at the England screening of Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone. Isan was amused by her father’s jokes and seemed to favor Idris’ portrayal of Harry riding on his famous broom.
Elba will star as the villain in the upcoming thriller, No Good Deed. The actor will portray Colin, an escaped convict who charms his way into the home of Terri (Taraji P. Henson) by telling her that he has experienced car trouble and needs help. Although Terri’s deed is good, it soon turns sour when Colin holds her and her family hostage in their own home.
Idris Elba has two kids, Isan and Winston. No Good Deed hits theaters on September 12, 2014.
