Idris Elba had no chemistry with his daughter in Beast

Idris Elba in the beast

As anyone who’s seen a romantic comedy knows, chemistry can either make or break a film. It’s also important in other types of stories, such as a survival thriller about a family trying to escape lion attack.

Idris Elba stopped by recently The Breakfast Club to discuss his latest project animal, in which he plays a father whose journey with his two teenage daughters to a South African game reserve takes an ominous turn. The children are played by Iyana Halley and Leah Sava Jeffries, but the cast could have been a little different.

“Interestingly, my daughter auditioned for this role because she wants to be an actress,” Elba recalls. “In the end, it all came down to chemistry. She’s great, but the relationship in the film and the relationship between me and my daughter, the chemistry wasn’t right for the film, weird enough.”

As noted in The AV Club‘s review, the role demanded a certain resentful tone after the death of the character’s mother, and it’s safe to assume that the real-life father-daughter dynamic isn’t like that. However, the cancellation did not make it any easier for 20-year-old Isan Elba.

“My daughter hasn’t spoken to me for about three weeks,” he said Pacific Rim actor says.

animal Producer Will Packer had to break the bad news to younger Elba.

“I give Idris props because a lot of people talk about nepotism,” says Packer The Breakfast Club. “Two fathers who really want the best for their children but are hard on them: Idris Elba and ice cubes. The only true. Idris was definitely like, ‘Listen, get her through the ropes. Go in, give her an injection, listen.’ He auditioned her. He was very hard on her and said, ‘Listen, at the end of the day we’re going to make the best decision for the film. I trust you, Will, I trust the principal.” She was very good, she was very close. Idris is right, some of the nuances of this real-life relationship don’t translate to the screen at times.”

After those three weeks, the two have patched things up and it looks like Elba’s daughter is ready to take on other roles that might suit her better.

“She was very kind, we got through it, and I’m really proud of her that she went through it and then didn’t get the part but still got to the premiere,” says Elba.
