Chloe Moretz says it was a "dream" to work with Martin Scorsese - who she tricked into thinking she was British - in the new film Hugo.

The 14-year-old US actress was selected by the acclaimed director to appear in the film after she hoodwinked him during her New York audition.

She told Collider: "I completely fooled him into thinking I was a British actress and then at the end of the audition I went back into my American accent.

"He said 'hold on are you American? I was like 'I am American,' so I tricked Martin Scorsese.

"Working with Scorsese is a dream. He's legendary, the most iconic director living right now," she said.

And she said of Sir Ben Kingsley, who also stars in the film, based on the 2007 illustrated novel, The Invention of Hugo Cabret: "Sir Ben Kingsley is an iconic actor so working opposite him was something else."

Chloe, who next stars in Tim Burton film Dark Shadows, said she had around four or five films lined up for next year, including one which is "very highly anticipated".
