The Luther actor fulfilled a longheld ambition when he trained to be a professional kickboxer for the documentary series Idris Elba: Fighter and now hopes the Discovery Channel will also fund another of his boyhood dreams.
Asked what he wants to try next, he told Closer magazine: “To be a spaceman. If Discovery will pay for it then I’ll go into space.”
The 44-year-old star is currently filming The Mountain Between Us with Kate Winslet and thinks his fight training has inspired the Oscar-winning actress to push herself more.
He said: “I think my current costar is quite impressed actually and has decided to take up Pilates pretty heavily.”
