Michael Fassbender Felt Pressure of Working With Ridley Scott

Michael Fassbender and Ridley ScottMichael Fassbender admits he felt the "pressure" when working with Ridley Scott.

The actor teamed up with the Alien director in new sci-fi movie Prometheus and he says he had a "healthy amount of fear" before starting work because he has so much respect for Scott: "You're very much aware of that and that it is Ridley and that it is this world and there is that pressure, but that's good. That gives you a healthy amount of fear and then like I said I try to get all of the preparation squared away and then on set really try to have fun."

However, Fassbender says the most important thing about the movie - which also stars Charlize Theron and Guy Pearce - was enjoying playing the character and having fun.

"I knew that I wanted to have fun with this character. I really wanted to enjoy it and Ridley and I seemed to click immediately in terms of what was going on with the character and the freedom to try things out with him and to find the humor in there. I said to him, 'This guy is funny, right?' He was like 'Yes. Great. Let's go for it.' So yeah, that was the main thing, to really enjoy him."
