Idris Elba Says Filming Hit Show 'Luther' is 'Depressing'

The 46-year-old actor kept things cool in a red beanie, black sweater, and tan trousers as he stepped out to do some press for the fifth season of his show Luther.

However, during a recent interview Idris said filming his show is “depressing.”

“It’s a tough show to make; it’s not fun making Luther,” Idris told Radio Times. “It’s very gruelling. Tough, long hours and obviously because of the nature of the type of show it is, it deals with murder, it’s depressing if I’m honest. But it’s a good bit of drama and the fans really love it.”

Season five of Luther premieres in early 2019.
