Ruth Wilson's Lone Ranger risks

Ruth Wilson has told how she will brave the roof of a moving train in stunts for The Lone Ranger.

The Luther star plays female lead Rebecca in Disney's new big-screen adaptation of the cowboy classic, starring Armie Hammer as the Lone Ranger and Johnny Depp as his sidekick Tonto.

Ruth revealed: "I get to run along the top of a train and jump off a train as well.

"And there will be some lassoing, so it's going to be really exciting and working with Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer and Tom Wilkinson as well, it's a great cast."

The 30-year-old British star - who just picked up the Best Actress award for her stage work in Anna Christie at the 2012 Oliver Awards - told how her character will be mucking in with the lads in the heart of the action, and could even come between the famous cowboy and his loyal sidekick.

She said: "I play the Lone Ranger's sister-in-law so I'm in the middle of a little triangle there."
