Idris Elba may be an award-winning thespian, but he’s not above fangirling over Meghan Markle

The Luther star attended a Prince’s Trust event last night and revealed that, as a British man, he’s just as charmed by Markle as we are.

The London native told Sky News, “As a strong woman marrying into our royal family, [Meghan Markle is] going to be a role model for any woman…She’s going to be a beacon, and of course, she’s going to be someone that people look towards.”

You preach, Idris Elba.
