With the release of Brett Ratner’s Hercules edging ever closer, we had the opportunity of speaking to cast members Ian McShane and Ingrid Bolsø Berdal beforehand, who play Amphiaraus and Atalanta, respectively.

McShane, who has worked on huge blockbusters before such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Snow White and the Huntsman and Jack the Giant Slayer, discusses how the spirit on the camp compared to usual, as the pair recount what was a memorable experience. Berdal also tells us of her archery training she undertook for the role, and what it was like being one of the only women around on set.

Hercules is released on July 25th, and you can read our review here.
