Idris Elba just gave us the sweetest holiday message, from his bed (gasp!).

The Star Trek star posted a short video on Christmas morning thanking fans for their support and to remind them of his gratitude. “Merry Christmas to my very loyal fans,” he wrote. “This doesn't exist if you don't exist. Thank you and happy holidays.

Elba has been keeping a low profile on social media—his last post was seven weeks ago. The 44-year-old Brit has been keeping busy with his new passion for kickboxing and has been traveling the world filming for Idris Elba: Fighter, a new Discovery Channel documentary on the roots of the martial art.

Cutting weight, two days before first fight, mind in the right place. Fear NO guy.
