A Northern Ireland film fan said it was "a privilege" to interview the stars of Oscar-nominated war epic, 1917.

Aspiring film critic Kasper Andreasen (15) from Banbridge flew to London with his mum as part of the two-year Young Reporter Programme run by film education charity Into Film, which aims to "put film at the heart of children and young people's education". Kasper first interviewed the young stars of the movie, Dean Charles Chapman and George Mackay. He said: "I think they were surprised at my age and that it was my very first interview, but they really put me at ease and the interview flowed.

"Next up, I had the pleasure of interviewing the director, Sir Sam Mendes. Throughout the interview, he was very funny and relaxed and shared with me that he had a son my age.

"I did make sure to compliment one of the final shots of the film which he was very pleased to hear."
