Idris Elba, who will be playing the main villain in Star Trek Beyond, had a few words to say about the franchise.

The actor also has a favorite Star Trek character.

Filming has begun on Star Trek Beyond, and Elba is working with his favorite Trek character.

“Almost everyone was a Trekkie, really, weren’t they? I wouldn’t say I was a hardcore one but I definitely watched that show a million times,” he said.

Who was his favorite on Star Trek? “Spock was probably my favorite character,” he said, “and in [Star Trek Beyond] I have some scenes with Zachary Quinto.

Elba loves being an actor. “…There are loads of roles I’d love to play, as an actor I’m still growing,” he said. “As long as I have an audience that enjoys watching me, I’ll keep on doing it. I’m never going to stop acting, I love it too much. I just want to keep the variety there.”
