Elba: 'I never want to do that again'

Idris Elba is likely counting his blessings on this Christmas Day after his car flipped over while filming an upcoming television documentary, reports The Sun.


The 41-year-old actor walked away uninjured as the vehicle spun out of control on an off-road rally circuit in Finland.


“I never want to do that again. It’s the first time that I have ever rolled a car,” he told the newspaper. “I wasn’t going fast, the car just had a mind of its own when it hit the bank. I cut the corner and then we rolled.”


Idris was shooting the BBC documentary Idris Elba: King Of Speed, which is set to air in the U.K. on Dec. 26 and 27. His latest film, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, is in theaters now.
