Rafe Spall recently sat down with the excellent British newspaper The Guardian & during a lengthy interview discussed some of his most recent work including of course his turn in Ridley Scott's Prometheus. The actor is understood to be playing a scientist in the sci-fi behemoth which will finally arrive June 8th 2012. Spall joins a cast that boasts Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce, Ben Foster & Patrick Wilson. Hit the jump for the details.
Rale Spall: "Doing Prometheus was what you imagine being an actor is like when you're five. In a spacesuit, on another planet, getting killed by an alien. It was a real treat, it felt like being a part of movie history. As an actor, you try and be cool, but one of the reasons you become an actor is because you're a film fan. And then you're like, 'Oh my god, Ridley Scott just spoke to me!' I did this screen test for him once before, for a part I didn't get in the end, but I went to his office and it was the most nervous I've ever been. He's got every clapperboard of every film he's ever done, he's got the original Alien spacesuit, and he's got all these stills and photographs of his life, a photo of him and his brother, Tony. I was like, 'This is fucking mental!"
