Recently, Elba has been known mainly by Marvel films (Thor or Avengers), where he portrays the character of Heimdalla. The 2011 Golden Globe holder for Luther’s performance on the new coronavirus infection informed the public on Twitter on Monday evening.
“Stay at home and be pragmatic,” the actor said in a statement. At the same time, he stated that he had been tested after contact with a possible source of infection and has not yet experienced any signs of infection. However, the coronavirus test was positive. The actor has not stated whether Elb’s wife Sabrina is also infected.
Elba joins a number of celebrities who have been infected with a new virus that has affected nearly 180,000 people worldwide and claimed over 1,000 victims. On Monday, the former “Bondgirl” Olga Kurylenkova also announced the infection.
For example, Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks and his wife, actress Rita Wilson, or the wife of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, have announced the contagion.
