toofab: How was it acting with Kristen?
Sam: I’m very lucky to work with such people. I’m scared I’ve been spoiled. Kristen was an absolute pleasure. She’s so young and so talented.
Here she is … the most famous person on the planet. People think actresses like her are going to be a diva; not generous with her time. She was down-to-earth, generous, professional and hardworking.
toofab: She has a reputation for being notoriously shy.
Sam: On a set like this everyone is quite nervous. I never found she was too shy to talk. She was incredibly inviting.
toofab: They joke that the go-to accent in fantasy films is British. As a native Brit how did you fare?
Sam: I was the lucky one, I was the only one to have his own accent. It was great that I didn’t have that added pressure.
I was knocked for six [British expression for being completely floored] hearing Kristen speak with an accent. I was so used to her speaking as an American. She had the perfect English accent.
