Sought after talent Carey Mulligan saw danger in Michael Fassbender shooting Shame


07 December 2011

Sought after British talent Carey Mulligan has revealed she saw danger in her Shame co-star Michael Fassbender.

Fassbender is also sought after, appearing on most wishlists in Hollywood and Mulligan tells USA Today "Michael is genial and great, and doesn't put on a personality for people. He just is who he is.

While filming I saw the danger in him. Whether it was a violent, aggressive scene or a calm and empathetic one, I saw danger there.

"More often than not, he would be different in every take. He had the license to grab me and do things. You can't be delicate and careful. It was so exciting, I never knew what he was going to do."

In Shame Mulligan plays the helpless sister of Fassbender's sex addicted character whose life slowly falls apart before her eyes.

However Fassbender appeared more light hearted when talking about his reputation as a brooding actor and joked "I'm dark and dangerous all the time, I don't know. I've been lucky. This is what I dreamed of when I started at 17.

All my heroes like John Cazale, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Brando - there was an element of the character actor in these guys."

Shame arrives in UK cinemas on January 13.
