Idris Elba’s daughter, Isan Elba, is making headlines after being names the 2019 Golden Globe Ambassador. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association broke the news on Wednesday just a week after her father was named Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine. The 16-year-old will also get a chance to choose a nonprofit organization to work with and raise money for.
Elba says she is excited about her new role and is confident that she will execute well. “I feel honored to hold this title and use this role to not only further educate people on the work of the HFPA, but also shine a light on issues that I care about,” she said in a statement.
“Mental health specifically among African Americans and my peers, in particular, is something I really want to be more vocal about,” she adds. “There’s this perceived stigma, and I’ve seen friends struggle. We need to empower young people to not be afraid to ask for help.”
