Buckley: Pyramid like my first film

James Buckley has confessed his excitement at making "a proper film" after starring in new horror movie The Pyramid.

The Inbetweeners star plays a documentary filmmaker in the spooky flick about an archaeological team who uncover a lost pyramid and get more than they bargained for when they explore inside.

James, known to millions as Jay from hit comedy The Inbetweeners, said: "It was fun to film. With respect, everything I've done so far has been me on a suburban street, wearing a school uniform, so it was nice to feel like I was actually making a proper film.

"The set was incredible. It was absolutely amazing. There's not green screen or anything, everything you see was built - sand traps and booby traps - and it was really fun and scary and I really enjoyed it."

The 27-year-old admitted he did get knocked about in the stunt scenes, but he saw his bruises as badges of honour.

James said: "I think there was a few little scrapes from pulling yourself out of tight corridors and running around in the pitch black - but it's all part of the fun."

And the actor admitted he loves horror films.

"I'm really easy to frighten, I'm really jumpy. So I really get my money's worth every time I go to see a horror film, and there's a weird pleasure I get from being absolutely frightened. So this was really a dream come true for me."

The Pyramid is released in cinemas on Friday December 5, 2014.
