Having taken on a role in the renowned romantic drama The Notebook, actor James Marsden returns to the world of Nicholas Sparks once again – this time taking on the lead role, in The Best of Me.

We spoke to James about working in such an environment – and his chemistry with his on-screen partner Michelle Monaghan. We also asked about his collaboration with Luke Bracey – who plays a younger version of his character Dawson Cole in the movie – while we quiz him on his array of forthcoming projects.

The Best of Me is out in cinemas now.
