Rufus Sewell talks Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Among the highlights of Total Film 's weekend at Kapow! Comic Con, was our interview with Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter star Rufus Sewell.

The English actor, whose long career has taken in titles such as Dark City , The Illusionist and The Tourist , proved to be a candid and forthright interviewee on the TF stage.

TF 's Jamie Graham grilled the actor about working with director Timur Bekmambetov, and he discussed the nature of trying to get into character when you're playing a history-defying vamp.

Sewell shares refreshing observations into the glamour-free underside of shooting a mega-budget movie, particularly when it comes to the big set pieces, and explains what it's like to be working as a Brit in Hollywood.

Check out the interview now:

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter opens on 20 June 2012.
