Laura Haddock says her' Transformers:The Last Knight' co-star Sir Anthony Hopkins was a "dream" to work with because he was always excited to be on set
Laura Haddock's ' Transformers:The Last Knight' co-star Sir Anthony Hopkins was a "dream" to work with.
The 31-year-old actress has enjoyed shooting scenes opposite the veteran actor because, despite his years of experience, he still approaches every day as if it's his first.
She said: "Anthony Hopkins was just a dream to work with because he's so playful.
"He approaches this job like it's his first day every day - he's always so excited and open."
The British actress - who has 16-month-old son Pip with her husband Sam Claflin - has had to travel a lot with her work and fell in love with Namibia when she shot 'Strike Back'.
She recalled to Britain's Marie Claire magazine: "Namibia is a magical country. While filming 'Strike Back' we shot a scene flying across the desert in a helicopter at sunset.
"I just looked out at this landscape and thought, 'How on earth is this work?' "
When she has time off work, Laura and Sam like to sit at home and watch their favourite feel-good movies.
She said: "If my husband and I have a night in together we always put 'Wedding Crashers' on.
"It's so feel-good, you can watch it with a box of Maltesers and not worry about anything.
"I'm pretty sure the cast must have been giggling a lot off-camera while filming it."
'Transformers: The Last Knight' - which is also known as 'Transformers 5' - is released next month.
