5. Idris Elba goes blind in music video
Idris Elba is navigating the world as a blind man in the video for Mumford & Sons’ "Lover Of The Light." Idris directed the visual in which he runs free in a forest, and Mumford said there was really no one else for the job.
"We are, quite obviously, huge fans of Idris Elba’s acting work, as pretty much anyone can agree he’s the most bada*s British actor since Richard Briars," he explained. "So we trusted him as the director for our latest video. We’ve been fortunate to work with some great directors in the past, but we’ve always been uncomfortable with the process of making music videos."
