Idris Elba’s daughter is living life like it’s golden.
Each year the Hollywood Foreign Press Association selects the offspring of a Hollywood royal and bestows on them the honor of being named the Golden Globe Ambassador — formerly known as Miss Golden Globe.
Past recipients have included Rumer Willis (daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore), Dakota Johnson (whose parents are Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson), Corinne Foxx (whose father is Jamie Foxx), Sylvester Stallone’s 3 daughters, Scarlet, Sistine, and Sophia, and most recently, Dwayne Johnson’s daughter, Simone Garcia Johnson.
The title means that the chosen lady stands on stage and hands out the statuettes to the winners of that year’s Golden Globe Awards.
The role has now been adapted to allow for gender-neutrality, as well as the commitment to philanthropy on the part of the HFPA.
2019’s Golden Globe Ambassador, Isan Elba, intends using her title to bring awareness to mental health.
“Mental health, specifically among African Americans and my peers in particular, is something I really want to be more vocal about,” says the 16-year-old. “There’s this perceived stigma and I’ve seen friends struggle. We need to empower young people to not be afraid to ask for help.”
We look forward to seeing Isan shine when the Golden Globes take place on the 6th of January.
