" It's kind of fun when it's you versus them. "

" There is nothing better than spending four or five hours in the kitchen with a heap of food, and a glass of wine. "

" So the mask was just really easy, I've got to be honest. And it was great actually because it really allowed you to get into the character a little bit more maybe than without it, if that makes sense. "

" I stepped into Victor's office and it was like bigger than this [meeting room]. And it's so intimidating and it's all made out of this cobalt, kind of cold material. It's got all this material from the moon. "

" That was a great moment for me because that was like the first moment I felt like I was on this $200 million movie. "
