Is one of his parents Muslim ? Idris/Idrissa is an Arab name.

West Africa has a large Muslim population, so it’s possible

Lol this person has no idea what 40 percent European looks like… this dude looks pure African.

I guess she assumes 100% black is the color of black like his jacket people are so weird. Most black people are actually milk chocolate brown in color to peanut butter or cafe au lait mocha

WEll seeing all the NASTY things whites and others have said about black people(just on this site alone). What she said wasn’t bad at all

cwm85 July 21, 2015 at 3:26 pm

No shit!

The same reason they found sean connery in 1989 to be the sexist. man alive, even thou he was 59 yrs old at the time. People like what, what they like. I ‘m probably the only guy here, that doesn’t. Think Angelina jolie is all that

cwm85 August 12, 2015 at 12:53 pm

She certainly has aged.

He ain’t shit (appearance wise and talent wise). Not hating, just being honest.

Adamina September 9, 2016 at 10:05 pm

You don’t see his sexiness but someone else does. Deal with it

Sorry didn’t finish my sentence I meant to type he had. Pity you can’t edit on here after posting.

Alice July 3, 2015 at 4:25 am

He’s very good looking and a great actor. I’ve watched him in Luther for quite a well. A very good actor. I’ve wondered what ancestry he he.

Alice July 3, 2015 at 4:28 am

No I’m not laughing and don’t have a stutter. Anyway to get an edit button on here?

He’s so effin’ sexy, and when he talks in his british accent, it’s so nice.
