Idris Elba on being asked about the struggles of Black actors:

 

"I’m so bored of answering that. Are there differences between Black actors’ opportunities and white actors’ opportunities? Yes, there are. It’s been said. I’d rather a young Black actor read about success as opposed to how tough it was. I get these roles because I can act and that’s it. Hopefully that’s it. The less I talk about being black, the better."
