Mackenzie Davis is pleased her What If co-star Adam Driver has managed to bag a Star Wars role.

At 5ft. 10ins. the actress often towers above her more petite co-stars. She stars alongside Adam, Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan in anti-rom-com What If and appreciated having the Girls star, who stands at 6ft. 3ins., on set.

"He's very tall, and that was great because I'm also tall, so I didn't look like the only big person in the film," she laughed to Total Film. "He is very fun to improvise with."

Adam, 30, is currently filming Star Wars: Episode VII. Mackenzie is really happy her co-star has managed to get such a good role.

"Star Wars is the hugest thing ever, it's amazing," she grinned. "And he's playing the villain, I heard, which is awesome - that's the best thing I can imagine. That sounds so cool."

What If is about a boy and a girl who wonder whether their friendship could become more. With such a young cast, it's no wonder 25-year-old Mackenzie had a great time making the movie.

"It was really, really fun," she smiled. "It was a bit like summer camp, filming the scene where you're having a campfire and going skinny-dipping. And Zoe and Daniel and Adam were all lovely, hilarious people."

It's not the first great cast the actress has been a part of. She also starred in comedy That Awkward Moment, which featured Zac Efron and Imogen Poots.

Mackenzie's next dream role isn't specific, she just wants to keep working with "interesting people".
