Idris Elba, John Boyega And 8 Other British Baes

March 18, 2016 ‐ By Nneka Samuel

The Brits are known for a lot of things like tea, the monarchy and…producing fine baes?  Well, if these men are any indication, that statement is most definitely true.  But what is it about these men from across the pond that drives us so crazy?  Is it their undeniable talent, their charming accents, their ability to stand up for what they believe in, their whole-hearted draw-you-in smiles?  All of those attributes play a part, but why stop there?  Read on for our list of British baes.

John Boyega

Rising star and British-Nigerian actor John Boyega lit up the big screen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, one of the biggest movies of 2015 (and one of the highest-grossing films of all time).  When racist fans of the franchise scoffed at Boyega for playing a Stormtrooper, he clapped back with a quickness.  Here’s what he had to say to them in a New York Times interview: “I am grounded in who I am, and I am a confident, Nigerian, Black, chocolate man.”

Swoon.
