All it took was the recognizable red suit and some white beard to make Elba the Santa. Idris was joined by his friend Stormzy in handing out Christmas presents and sharing a couple of laughs with the children. The good-looking actor looked natural in this role with both the kids and the parents being delighted to have this unexpected visitor.

Celebrities making Christmas fun even in hospitals.
Recently another A-list Hollywood star also visited a children's hospital. It was none other than Johnny Depp masked as one of his most famous roles - Captain Jack Sparrow. To the delight of children who easily recognized the famed actor, he took the time to have a word or two with all the children at the BC Children’s Hospital.
