    Idris Elba is one of my favorite actors! I hope he gets well soon. I hope he will appear to the red carpet and will take part in all the events. I know how he was willing for this role and I do not want him to miss all the fun. Unfortunately asthma can surprise its owners unexpectedly. I hope the right medical help was offered at the very needed moment. I wish this actor much health and happiness!
