"I won't be moving out here [to LA]," he said. "I don't want to get into all of that. I don't want my family growing up here. That isn't me, it just isn't.

"I rented a place on my own in North Hollywood, but the time I spent here was on my own. I'm not into the whole fame thing."

He continued: "I don't have celebrity friends. I have the same ones I had from when I was a kid. For me it's about my family, it's about my kids, what is best for them."

The Luther star, who has an 11-year-old daughter Isan with his ex-wife and a 4-month-old son Winston with his girlfriend, said that growing up in Hackney was an inspiration for his work in the BBC crime drama.

"It wasn't easy but I feel at home there," he said. "I love it, it's that kind of place. My heart will always be there. I learned so much there.

"I have the best memories of playing outside with my friends. We had very little but it didn't matter. It was the simple things that I enjoyed and I still do. It was a poor area back then but it taught me a lot."

Elba also spoke about his part-time DJ career, saying that his upbringing in London also influenced his love of music.

"I would go to clubs and DJ for very little money. I didn't mind, I loved doing it," he said. "So today, when I think about how I have been nominated for these awards as an actor, I'm like, 'Wow, this is quite special for a boy who used to hang around Canning Town'.

"I spent 20 years trying to crack it either as an actor or a DJ. Now I'm lucky enough to be able to do both."

The actor, who has a DJ residency at Pikes in Ibiza, said that he loves spending time on the island, saying: "It's so chilled. You feel like you're away from everything. I spend a lot of time there."

Elba recently hinted that Luther will soon be returning to TV and that he has ambitions to turn the series into a film featuring the original cast.
