Eddie Izzard still has no idea what his new film 'Valkyrie' will be like, despite shooting it 18 months ago
Eddie Izzard still hasn't seen his new movie 'Valkyrie', despite shooting it 18 months ago.
The British actor appears in the much delayed film alongside Tom Cruise, but despite it being released this month, he hasn't watched a final cut yet.
Eddie, 46, said: "I haven't seen 'Valkyrie' yet. I did that a year and a half ago. I have no idea what I did. It's so odd, for a year and a half you're waiting to see - all the preparation you put into it - whether it came off or whether it didn't. In stand up you get it a split second after you say it."
Eddie has recently returned to stand up comedy - receiving a hugely positive reaction in the UK where he sold out his first run of shows in London's West End for 12 years in 48 hours - but insists he is still pursuing his dramatic acting career.
He added: "I've slightly downplayed the stand-up over the past 15 years and kept pushing on the drama. But I'm still playing catch up."
Eddie has also appeared in films including 'Ocean's Thirteen' and TV series 'The Riches', as well as lending his voice to characters in animated film 'Igor' and UK film 'The Chronicles of Narnia: Price Caspian'.
