Idris Elba has shown his support for Meghan Markle after her explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
During a promotion for his new film – Concrete Cowboy, Idris was asked to share his opinion on the whole Meghan Markle and Royal family scandal.
Entertainment Tonight asked Idris: “We have seen in real life your friend Meghan Markle telling her story of the black experience – what do you think about her courage, just stepping out and saying ‘I need to speak my truth’?”
Elba made it clear in his response that he felt Meghan had been backed into a corner and was given no other option but to speak out.
He said: “I will say that everyone has to have their opportunity to speak up about what they feel.
“You cannot take someone’s voice away, that’s what we have to communicate.”
