As a major actor who has starred in hit series like The Wire and blockbuster movies like Prometheus, you would think there isn't much that can intimidate Idris Elba. But it turns out there was one gig that really put the pressure on for the 49-year-old actor: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding.
Besides acting, Elba has explored DJ'ing throughout the years, working gigs for high-profile figures like Madonna. But according to a report from The Daily Mail, the British performer was really nervous about his set for the Sussexes.
When asked what his most stressful DJ'ing gig was, Elba responded, “The wedding, no doubt.” Elba explained that Markle had sent him a playlist ahead of time, but he said, “This wasn’t like my cousin’s wedding. This wasn’t at the community hall—the reception...This was a big, big deal.”
Elba added, “They’re good friends and I wanted to make sure they had a great time, so there was a lot of pressure.”
