Marsan: Spielberg's a lovely man

Eddie Marsan reckons Steven Spielberg's enthusiasm for filmmaking is infectious

Steven Spielberg's passion for filmmaking "seeps through to everybody on set", War Horse star Eddie Marsan has revealed.

The Junkhearts actor plays Sgt Fry in the big screen adaptation of the theatre hit, and admitted working with the Oscar-winning director was a dream come true.

"He's a lovely man, full of enthusiasm. He's really creative and really enjoys his work and his enthusiasm seeps through to everybody on set," Eddie revealed.

"It's a fantastic dream."

The actor admitted he could hear the music of composer John Williams, a longtime collaborator of Spielberg's, running through his head while shooting.

"If you work with Steven Spielberg, if you do a scene with him, you can't help but hear John Williams' violins, so you have to stop acting to music, because you imagine, 'In this scene they're going to be really coming in with the violins'. They didn't use them on my scene actually!" Eddie added.

:: War Horse is released on January 13.
