Idris Elba rushes to fitting fan during play

IDRIS Elba rushed to the side of a fitting fan during his play Tree in Manchester.

The Luther star leapt off stage to help Amanda Bilington when he saw she was having a fit in the audience at the Upper Campfield Market in Manchester during the preview of his new production Tree on Wednesday.

The 33-year-old theatre-goer – who suffers from regular seizures due to an undiagnosed condition – didn’t realise the 46-year-old actor was standing by her side until she regained consciousness a little while later and he continued to stay with her until the paramedics arrived to take over her care.

Bilington told the Daily Mirror newspaper, “I would love to thank him personally, but doubt I will cross paths with him, he’s very famous.” – BANG!
