Tim Burton exceeded expectations for Chloe Moretz on Dark Shadows shoot

19 October 2011

Kick-Ass rising star Chloe Moretz has revealed that working with legendary Hollywood director Tim Burton on the forthcoming Dark Shadows film exceeded all her expectations.

The 14 year old rising star filmed Dark Shadows in the UK with Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer and Helena Bonham Carter earlier this year but has admitted that working with Burton was the highlight, however she did get star struck on the first day.

Speaking to Collider she said "Tim Burton has always been one of my dream directors to work with. When I got a call and they said, 'Tim Burton wants you to be in his movie,' I was like, 'Woah! Excuse me?!' It was a lot to take in. It was very, very fun.

Working with him really did live up to all of my expectations, and actually went beyond everything I expected him to be. He was really one of the nicest and most normal guys I've ever met, but he has this brain. You get where everything comes from because his brain is just so creative.

The first day I came on set, it was a dinner or breakfast scene with Helena, Johnny and Michelle, and literally the whole cast, sitting at this gigantic dinner table, and the scene was us, eating. For me to walk in and sit at this table with some of the most phenomenal actors, and then have one of the most amazing directors in the corner of the room, it was so, so, so surreal. I was able to just do so much. It really just flabbergasted me."

Moretz plays Carolyn Stoddard in the film which is expected in cinemas next year, and features an all star cast including Eva Green, Jackie Earle Haley, Jonny Lee Miller and Christopher Lee.
