That character was really a lot of fun, it was fun working on those scenes and coming up with different ways for the character to die was a lot of fun. When you're looking at films and playing with cinema a little bit, we're lovers of cinema first and foremost, Doug and I. Just having that kind of concept there in the movie, I thought it would add texture and it was just kinda cool. Getting in the suite? You know what's important is just get the abs tight. Keep your back up because it will compress you spine and just gotta not think about pain. Probably learning all the stunts, you know. When I learnt them in the suit for the first time. You mess them up when you do them first time, so I had some big falls. So I would say that a couple of knocks like that would have been the hardest time, yeah. I mean, he's just such a force of nature. He's such a dynamic personality, he's a wonderful guy as well. I love that it's set in London, that we shot it here. We got Brits in it, Australians in it, we got people from all over the world in it and so it's got that universal feel to it. C'mon, they can only fit so many people in a private jet. I didn't make the cut. It was great, you know? I remember getting the scripts through and going like, 'Why have you sent me this, man? They're not gonna... Tom Cruise, man. W-w-why? Wasting my time going down to London.' But, anyway, I went down and I knew I did a first good audition and I could tell from the casting director's response that I'd done a good audition and then I went back down and I met Doug and I met Erwin and I found out I was cast. But it was amazing. It's my first studio film so I was extremely excited and then, when I knew the attached cast, obviously, with the British actors that are involved. Emily Blunt, Charlotte Riley, Tony Way, Bill Paxton, Brendan Gleeson, all this stuff, so, it was really just exciting and a thrill just to get on set and work with these people. So it was an amazing experience. Well, the character was sort of in development. That came through discussions with myself, the producer and the director. That was with quite a lot of our people. So that was sort of a collaborative thing. So that was, like, part of my ideas and the director's ideas, so it wasn't on a page already, it was sort of born, so. I mean, he let us do what we wanted to do and what we needed to do. He didn't give us tips, he encouraged us and that is the best way of giving someone tips in the world, I think. We had to eat right, we had to train right and it was long days in the suit, but we enjoyed it. It was kind of what bonded us. I've just finished doing Mr. Strange and Mr. Norrell for the BBC which comes out in December and I'm just finishing off Peaky Blinders. And I did Heart of the Sea with Ron Howard and Chris Hemsworth. Yeah, it was an amazing story. I actually love the challenge of taking the concept of Edge of Tomorrow and having characters repeating the day and never having it ever feel repetitive, that was the thing. That was one of the most exciting aspects of making Edge of Tomorrow. Tom Cruise was such an awesome partner for me in this film because, first of all, we had an idea how to turn the brand of Tom Cruise upside down. He's not the Tom Cruise that audiences expect. Tom plays a coward, he plays somebody that's just truly an awful soldier and you've never seen Tom Cruise be bad at anything. I mean, I just spent two years making a movie with him I never saw him be bad at anything in real life and fail or be bad at anything ever. But he plays that role so great and it's something you never seen him do before and it's so much fun to watch.
