While filming Beasts of No Nation, which was released in October, Idris Elba (of BBC's Luther, HBO's The Wire, and a handful of inevitable James Bond rumors) was finally able to visit Ghana, where his mother grew up. Travel + Leisure caught up with the actor at the Telluride Film Festival this fall; in this edition of Asked+Answered, Idris shares his experience visiting the West African nation for the very first time. Give it a watch.
