Idris Elba's Daughter Isan Named Golden Globe Ambassador 2019!

Idris Elba's Daughter Isan Named Golden Globe Ambassador 2019!

It’s a big month for the Elbas!

Just a week after Idris Elba was named People’s 2018 Sexiest Man Alive, it has been announced that his 16-year-old daughter Isan has been selected as the 2019 Golden Globe Ambassador.

Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Meher Tatna made the announcement during a ceremony on Wednesday night (November 14) at the Four Seasons in Los Angeles.

Each year, the HFPA chooses a child of one of Hollywood’s most respected actors, director, or producers to help them raise money and awareness for a nonprofit organization of their choice.

“I feel honored to hold this title and use this role to not only further educate people on the work of the HFPA, but also shine a light on issues that I care about,” Isan shared during the event. “Mental health, specifically among African Americans and my peers in particular, is something I really want to be more vocal about. There’s this perceived stigma and I’ve seen friends struggle. We need to empower young people to not be afraid to ask for help.”

Isan will also be helping out during the ceremony next year by ushering presenters on and off stage and handing out awards.

The 2019 Golden Globes will take place on Sunday, January 6, 2019 on NBC.
