Idris Elba got lucky. According to The Sun, the Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom actor was able to walk away unscratched after a car he was driving flipped over. While shooting a racing documentary in Finland titled Idris Elba: King of Speed, he went over an embankment that overturned the vehicle.

“I never want to do that again,” he told The Sun. “It’s the first time that I have ever rolled a car. I wasn’t going fast, the car just had a mind of its own when it hit the band. I cut the corner and then we rolled.” Despite the scary experience, he kept right on filming. Glad he’s A-okay. The two-part film is set to air in the UK Dec. 26 and 27.
