Idris Elba almost died in Ghana

Idris Elba almost died while filming scenes for his latest movie Beasts Of No Nation.
The actor, 43, was on set in a tense scene near a waterfall in Ghana when his foot slipped off a rock and the branch he held on to snapped.
Recalling the incident on The Jonathan Ross Show, Elba - who plays warlord Commandant in the Netflix film - said: "I nearly died. I was doing this scene - we decided to do this waterfall scene where all these child soldiers were walking behind this massive waterfall.

"Cary Fukunaga, the director, decided to shoot it for real. We went to this waterfall and in this scene my character is standing there watching all the child soldiers go past. Now in the setup of that, the stunt co-ordinator says, 'Listen everyone, this is a waterfall, that's a 90, 100 foot drop down there and the ground is very slippery, just be careful!'
