Marsan: I had faith in Tyrannosaur

Eddie Marsan had faith in Tyrannosaur

Eddie Marsan has revealed he knew the indie film Tyrannosaur would be a hit.

The Happy Go Lucky star plays an abusive husband in the film, which was penned and directed by Paddy Considine and has been winning accolades since its release earlier this year.

Eddie admitted: "I knew it would be a good film because I knew that Paddy had written a great script and is a great director, so it doesn't surprise me.

"And I knew that (co-stars) Olivia Williams and Peter Mullan were both great actors and they've given great performances."

Eddie has also been busy reprising his role as Inspector Lestrade in Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows, the sequel to Guy Ritchie's 2009 hit Sherlock Holmes.

When asked why he decided to play the part again, he replied: "It was just a good script. And it was a chance to work with Jude (Law) and Robert (Downey Jr) and Guy and when they asked me to do it, it's a great part Lestrade, and I thought, 'I'd love to do it'."
