CANNES (Hollywood Reporter) – “The Wire” star Idris Elba wants British television to stop talking on-screen diversity and “just do it”: put more actors of color on the small screen.
“If you look at American television, it is nothing to see a cast that is multi-racial. So we shouldn’t shy away from demanding more diversity on British TV. Only because it reflects the culture we live in,” said the English actor, who also guest-starred as a no-nonsense corporate VP on the U.S. version of “The Office.”
