Bell found playing Tintin challenging

London: Actor Jamie Bell says he found playing the titular character in the 3D film The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn very challenging.

The 25-year-old also said it was amazing to be able to walk down the street unnoticed afterwards, reported Contactmusic.

“There is a level of anonymity that comes with this role. It’s not me. I can still walk down the street. There are elements of me, the way I raise my eyebrow, but you still have to know Jamie Bell very well to recognise me. It is the spirit of me, it is the emotionality of me.

“But being the lead in a Spielberg movie and still being able to walk down the street after it comes out is really amazing. It’s a gift. But there were lots of challenges still,” Bell said.

The actor said he is surprised to still be acting 10 years after his Best Actor BAFTA for starring as the titular character in Billy Elliot.

“I’m still working, thank God. Touch wood. I didn’t think I’d still be acting ten years after the BAFTA. I don’t think anyone expected it. Now there are tons of English actors over in LA. We are all part of the same team. It is a great time to be an Anglo actor. We are getting a lot of work, we are stealing it from them. It’s great,” he added. (PTI)
