  1. Personally I'd like to see less Hollywood in my games. I dont know if I'm alone but it completely breaks my immersion. In a movie I see Idris Elba as the character hes playing but in a game I just see Idris Elba. I'm not sure of the Psychology behind it but its just how I feel. It could also just be a me thing.

  2. Two legends, one interview….amazing work and fantastic questions for Idris from Henry, great to see and learn how idris approached his character in Phantom Liberty nd his approaxh to acting overall, awesome interview.

  3. He is an American character in the game. Wish he had done a Southerner accent like he did in that Taraji Hensen thriller where he was an escaped convict from Georgia or Alabama. If not that he should have done his natural British accent. It's sooooo cool!
