In his cover interview, Elba spoke about about work, love and fatherhood and his directorial debut in his upcoming film Yardie.
“Yardie is quite a semifamous bit of English literature about a small-time pastor who comes from Jamaica and ends up embroiled in [avenging his brother’s death],” he shares about his directorial debut film. “It’s set in the late ’70s, early ’80s, a hotbed of Jamaican culture in London, but then crack cocaine arrives.”
But we all know people are probably a little more interested in Elba’s love life.
“Am I ever gonna get remarried? I don’t think so. Yeah, I don’t think so,” he said. “Marriage is an institution of sorts. And I’ve done it. It’s not for everybody. It’s not my life’s calling.”
