Acclaimed actor Viggo Mortensen was in Dublin yesterday to attend an early screening of his most excellent new movie Captain Fantastic, and he stuck around for a Q&A afterwards.
He's best known for his part in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings saga but Mortensen has been a busy actor for many years with parts in films as diverse as Crimson Tide, Witness, Young Guns II, Daylight, A History of Violence and The Road. That's in addition to his work as a poet, artist and musician.
Mortensen's latest film is Captain Fantastic, the story of a man who raises his children in the wilderness far from civilisation. He talked about many things in his Q&A, including what he would like people to take from the film.
That's one heck of an answer, and just part of what he covered in a wide ranging chat with Brian Lloyd from Entertainment.ie. Captain Fantastic is in cinemas in Ireland on the 9th of September, 2016.
