Ralph Fiennes’ Filmmaking Pressure

Gerard Butler and Ralph Fiennes in Coriolanus

Ralph Fiennes felt a lot of pressure making Coriolanus. The 49-year-old actor makes his directorial debut with the Shakespearean adaptation and admits it was hard to juggle helming the project and also acting in it.

"There were days when I thought, 'I haven't got the right performance that I should be giving, but I haven't got time, and I have to move on.' And then, the pressure on the head - Got to move on! And even if you think, 'f**k, f**k, f**k' you can't afford to show it."

Ralph admits there were several occasions where he was disappointed with the footage shot each day and was pleased to learn a lot about the editing process.

"Then later, you look at the rushes and you think that's all s**t. And then, thankfully, you learn the magic of editing."

Ralph is rumored to be taking over from Dame Judi Dench as M in the next installment of the James Bond series, Skyfall, but refused to confirm the speculation: "My answer to that is, all this speculation, it's classified information."
