Total Film has woken Michael Fassbender up. When he strides into the London hotel suite where we’re waiting for him he admits jovially that he just “dropped off next door”.
No surprise. The 34-year-old Irishman has been busy jetting around the globe (“Toronto, New York, then back here, then New York again and then Paris…” he reels off when we ask why he’s pooped) promoting two awards botherers; stark (in every way) sex addict treatise Shame from Steve McQueen, and David Cronenberg’s psycho-sexual period drama A Dangerous Method.
That’s in-between festival appearances, promotion for Steven Soderbergh’s kickass actioner Haywire, finishing filming Alien equal Prometheus and prepping for a slew of future projects.
