“[Black Mirror is] where I caught the bug for sci-fi and why I was so excited to be involved with Outside the Wire,” Idris explains. “I’m so excited to do more sci-fi in the future.” When asked if he indeed sees a future in action and sci-fi roles, his response is enthusiastic: “A hundred percent… As an actor, I like to let the universe bring the roles to me. So whatever speaks to me is [what] I’m going to give my heart and soul to.”
Idris is from London, and he speaks naturally with a British accent. In Black Mirror he used something resembling his natural voice, but most American fans would recognize the American accent he used in Outside the Wire or Snowfall. When asked if we’d hear his natural accent more often going forward, Irdis says, “I think there’s going to be various different characters that will play in my career, God willing! From Americans to Europeans, to South Americans, to Africans, I’m excited to go all over the globe! Film is global — experience, love, peace is global. And that’s why I hope to portray in movies and the characters I play in the future.”
Outside the Wire is streaming on Netflix. Stay tuned to Looper for more exclusive coverage.
