Friday the 6th of October see’s the release of the romantic survival film, The Mountain Between Us starring Idris Elba and Kate Winslet.

Idris Elba stars in Twentieth Century Fox’s “The Mountain Between Us.”

With that in mind, we sat down with Mr. Elba to chat all things about the film. Idris isn’t known for his romantic roles, so we wanted to know how he approached his intimate scenes with Kate Winslet, his relationship with the dog in the film – who funnily has a Snapchat account, and more. Our interviewer, Zehra Phelan also managed to get in a cheeky birthday request too.
