I am so elated to announce that I am this year’s Golden Globe Ambassador! I am so honored that the HFPA has chosen me and I look forward to representing the Globes while also shining a light on mental health among African-Americans and teenagers! @goldenglobes #goldenglobeambassador #goldenglobes
Isan is the oldest daughter of Elba and his first wife Hanne Kim Nørgaard.
The role is typically given to the son or daughter of a respected actor or actress.
Their duties include distributing the Golden Globe trophies during the awards ceremony and working with a nonprofit organization to raise awareness for a cause of their choosing.
For Elba, its mental health awareness.
“Mental health, specifically among African Americans and my peers in particular, is something I really want to be more vocal about. 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.”
The new ambassador role replaced the old Miss Golden Globe / Mr Golden Globe “to represent a more inclusive role that was not only gender-neutral but also spoke to the HFPA’s commitment to philanthropy.”
The 76th Annual Golden Globes will air on Sunday, January 9, at 8PM ET on NBC.
