Newlyweds Idris Elba and wife Sabrina looked gorgeous at the L.A. premiere of "Hobbs & Shaw."

The couple, who got married in April, dished on their Morocco nuptials, telling "Extra's" Terri Seymour, "We had a great time. It was a really, really good wedding, the best fun — it was really a good time."

Elba also opened up about the royal baby. Despite having deejayed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding, the actor said he hasn’t met their son Archie yet. "No, no — no one has," he explained. Sabrina shared her best wishes, saying, "Congratulations to them. How amazing, so beautiful," while Idris added, "Very happy for them."

Idris plays the ultimate bad guy, Brixton, in "Hobbs & Shaw" – a villain who’s engineered to be unstoppable. "I trained for the fight. I was in decent shape anyway. I trained for each particular sequence... It was fun, it was great. It was hard work."

He said of joining Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Jason Statham in the film, "They’re good lads, very funny. They try to crack each other up the whole time. We had a good time — hard work, though. We worked long hours, got it done."

Next up for him? The film adaptation of the musical "Cats," with Taylor Swift, James Corden, Ian McKellen, Judi Dench, Jason Derulo and Rebel Wilson. "Did you know I could dance?" he teased, showing off some moves. "We had an amazing time doing 'Cats.' The most incredible film experience. I had never done anything like that before."
