“I went to a performing arts college and did two years of everything –– scene painting, a little ballet, a little contemporary dance,” Elba shared about his journey. Things however changed once he moved from London to America.
“It just all fell flat on its face very quickly for about four years,” he shared. “In that time period, I did a lot of things that I’m not proud of. But I did a lot of the things.”
He then went on to say that he worked as a DJ, a doorman at a comedy club, and sold weed while trying to get his career off the ground.
The actor got his big break by playing a drug dealer Stringer Bell on The Wire in 2002. On the podcast, the actor was promoting his role as Knuckles in the animated film, Sonic The Hedgehog 2.
