Misha in turn thinks working on the film was a game.
Daniel explained: “We were on a night shoot and it was 10 o’clock at night and it was cold. “He was not happy and he was not having any of it, and wanted to go home. “I said, ‘Mischa, no, it’s okay, we will make it a game, I really need you to help me by doing this.’ So he thinks he’s doing me a favour, which is awesome, but he’s got a really great attitude towards it, because he’s now just fantastically arrogant about it.
“He’ll go, ‘Yes, I’m probably going to better than you in the film Dan.’
“I’m like, ‘Yes Mischa, you probably are. But he’s fantastic.”

He said: “We are all just very supportive of each other, as you would expect I suppose.“They all come and see me and I’m excited. Rupert has just been finishing a film, Tom has got loads of films coming out as well as Planet of the Apes, Emma has just finished The Perks of Being a Wallflower. We all keep in touch.”
