7 Actors Who Love To DJ

Celebrities can rave, too.

Stars, they’re just like us! They walk like us, talk like us…and apparently some love EDM just as much as we do. Below are is our list of seven actors who confidently assert their love for this music.

Kristian Nairn

When Kristian Nairn isn’t being the simpleminded servant, Hodor, in HBO’s Game of Thrones, the Irish actor DJ’s instead. His SoundCloud is full of House mixes and he’s just announced the third leg of his US Rave of Thrones tour set for 2015.


Elijah Wood

As Frodo Baggins, Elijah Wood seems like the most unlikely person to venture into the dance scene. As it turns out however, this Lord of the Rings celebrity is all about the fresh beats. His partnership with Zach Cowie has resulted in their DJ project called Wooden Wisdom, with a little over 1,000 SoundCloud fans, despite having only one mix posted.

Idris Elba

The British-born actor, most popuarly known as Russell "Stringer" Bell in The Wire and detective John Luther in Luther, has also led a successful career as a travelling DJ under the alias Big Driis. Originally helping his uncle DJ weddings, Idris began a DJ company with his close friends, and has been spinning for the last 15 years. He was chosen to write and star in How Clubbing Changed The World due to his history and knowledge of dance history.
