On top of events as usual, Oprah Winfrey has started a new Apple TV+ series titled “Oprah Talks COVID-19” which is obviously about the coronavirus pandemic.
For the first installment, you probably won’t be surprised to learn she snagged actor Idris Elba along with his wife, Sabrina Dhowre-Elba. In the interview, done remotely via Facetime, Winfrey speaks with them about how they are coping after Elba tested positive for the virus.
Previewing the show, the media mogul posted a clip Saturday evening on social media.
“One of the upsides of this whole drama is that we are forced to think together as a race, as a human race.” the actor tells Winfrey.
On “Oprah Talks COVID-19” viewers find out that Sabrina has also tested positive with the coronavirus, a week after her husband.
Defending their decision to isolate together following Idris’ diagnosis, Sabrina told Oprah “I wanted to be with him” and claimed she felt “the instinct of a wife” to take care of him.
The couple also opened up about being quarantined together in New Mexico, where Elba’s latest film was in production.
“Actually, I found out this morning, Oprah, that I tested positive,” Dhowre-Elba told Winfrey on Facetime on Saturday.
