Born in Hackney, London Idris Elba became an instant heartthrob as soon as he stepped into the spotlight.
One of his first roles was on the soap opera "Family Affairs" in 1997.
He's A Doting Father
Father to Isan, 16, and Winston, 4, Idris is a swoon-worthy daddy.
And he's good at dad jokes as well. In fact, there is an entire Reddit thread about his hilarious dad humour.
And A Loving Fiancé
He loves his fiancée.
Back in February, Idris popped the question to longtime girlfriend, Canadian model Sabrina Dhowre ahead of the premiere of his movie "Yaddie".
He's A Talented Actor
From making a name for himself in "The Wire" to winning a Golden Globe in 2012 for his work on "Luther", Idris is quickly becoming a veteran actor.
Idris has been a part of many amazing projects, including "Star Trek", Marvel movies and the upcoming film adaptation of the musical "Cats".
Not only is he talented in front of the camera, but he's proved himself behind as well.
In 2012, Idris made his directorial debut with Mumford and Sons' "Lover of The Light" music video.
He Was On 'The Office'
Just like Kelly Kapoor (Mindy Kaling), when Idris, a.k.a Charles Minor, stepped into his first scene on "The Office, we all swooned.
While he was a temporary replacement for Steve Carell's Michael Scott at Dunder Mifflin, we loved seeing him on our screens.
He Can Rap
Idris showed off his musical chops alongside Macklemore on the track "Dance Off".
Not only can he rap, but he can throw down on the dance floor.
He Can Rock Facial Hair
While we like Idris with a clean shaven face, we LOVE Idris with a scruffy beard.
He Can DJ
We've heard him rap, but did you know he could DJ?
But when he's standing behind the DJ booth, he doesn't go by Idris, but “DJ Big Driis".
He Can Race Cars
Long before getting behind the wheel of the upcoming "Fast And Furious" spinoff with Dwayne Johnson (“Hobbs and Shaw,”), Idris had raced Formula 1 cars for years.
And his Instagram is full of photos of his favourite race cars.
