      The plastic face mask isn't to stop things dropping off, it's an animatronic 'skull' which will have a foam latex mask put over it, allowing the face to have a full range of expression. How can you be a film magazine and not know that?

      I was being flippant, BV - like with the recycling thing in the same sentence. I do indeed realise bits of movie character's faces don't just 'fall off' unless sheathed in a see-through helmet; that would presumably make shooting a scene quite a frustrating experience. Apologies if I wasn't being obvious enough.

      Is that Sean Slater from Eastenders on the left on page 9? Sorry if I just demonstrated my geekiness there.

      @MarkPowell @Sifi83 Wow, my a*se is red raw after that spanking! Serves me right for being half asleep and grumpy when I wrote my overly facetious comment! My own apologies for being a c**k, and for the record I think I may have got as excited as you did by the blog.

      Ken Stott and Richard Armitage in 9... good to see plenty more British actors being involved!
