Predictably, the conversation began to wander. And when asked how he found filming in Ireland for his incoming Dracula Untold, Zeus* himself said…
“I had the best time. It was a brilliant city [Belfast]. It’s not what I thought it was going to be – it’s a great place, it’s incredibly cultural, fantastic restaurants, loads of history. The people are just great, very warm and welcoming. And Northern Ireland is a stunning place. We used a lot of locations – the Giants Causeway, some beautiful forests and mountains. It was perfect, you can see why people shoot in Ireland because there are so many beautiful locations. I had a fantastic time. It was hard work, working every day of the shoot but it was great. And when I watch the film it’s going to bring back lots of memories. “
