McCrory gets chills on horror movie

Helen McCrory got the shivers filming The Woman In Black sequel

Helen McCrory got the shivers filming The Woman In Black sequel Angel Of Death - because she was freezing cold.

The star of Harry Potter and Peaky Blinders appears with Jeremy Irvine in Hammer Films' follow-up to the big screen adaptation of Susan Hill's best-selling novel about a haunted house.

Helen revealed: "It's very, very cold! I hadn't worked out that when you're doing a horror film it's never set in Hawaii. It's never, 'She wakes up in Hawaii, with a cocktail in her hand laughingly she runs into the blue lagoon...' No, no, no!

"So if you flatten any part of Britain and turn down the temperature and cover it in rain, we'd probably be filming there, so it's very, very cold, and all at night.

"But it was fantastic, I've never done a horror film and to do a Hammer Horror was great."

The 45-year-old actress has also just filmed A Little Chaos, directed by Alan Rickman.

She said: "It was a great antithesis to A Little Chaos, which is a seventeenth century love story with Kate Winslet and Matthias Schoenaerts, so it was a perfect balance."

If you act like you don't care about the outcome of a situation, they won't be paralysed with uncertainty. You have a tendency to make people nervous.More
