My wife was there and we were going to have some fun in the shower.
Some morning romance you know? She got in then I followed her and closed the door. But then I looked down and clinging for life to the inside shower door handle was this bat. A tiny wet bat. I hate bats. It was freaky as f***. I jumped out of the shower so fast. My wife makes fun of me about it to this day You left me in the shower with a bat. Idris went onto reveal that he first developed a fear of bats while he was in Australia in 2019.The Luther star has been in the midst of promoting his survival film Beast which pits a widowed husband on a trip to South Africa with his daughters against a huge rogue lion who is tracking them.
However the actor has since revealed that the lion was created using special effects and during filming there was a stand-in stuntman wearing a big foam mask and it proved challenging for him to recreate the same level of fear.Idris told The Daily Mails Alison Boshoff I have not done a movie where I m imagining and fighting with something that is not really there in such close proximity. I have fought in other movies with swords and weapons and against things that are not there. But how fearful can you be when you have got a guy in a grey suit and a big floppy head trying to beat you? So that was a skill set that I had to learn.
He added I do not like to watch films that I’m in. I typically go to a premiere watch the first ten minutes and then leave. But for some reason I stayed which was torture. However I was just fascinated about how we achieved the ferociousness of this lion.Elba plays a man who brings his two daughters to Africa where he first met his late wife when their lives are turned upside down.
