Mena Suvari praises Noel Clarke

August 28th, 2011

Mena Suvari would "love" to work with director Noel Clarke again.

The American actress came over to the UK to work on forthcoming movie 'The Knot' - which British star Noel directs and stars in - and she was very impressed by the up-and-coming filmmaker.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Noel Clarke is great! The movie centres around a wedding and so the groom's side, the bride's side, everyone coming together for this event. It's really funny.

"I play one of the bridesmaids, it was a lot of fun. Noel is great, and so talented. He wrote this and starred in it. I really admire him. I'd love to be able to work with him again in the future."

Noel - who has starred in sci-fi TV series 'Doctor Who', gritty London crime movie 'Kidulthood' and Ian Dury biopic 'Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll' - is not the only British star Mena has enjoyed working with.

The 32-year-old screen beauty loved hanging out with Colin Firth when they worked together on 2004 'Trauma' because he is an "absolute sweetheart".

She added: "The last time I was in London I was there working on this film with Colin Firth called 'Trauma'. He's very down to earth and an absolute sweetheart. It was an honour and a pleasure to work with him."

Mena is helping Captain Morgan search for buccaneering crew mates for The Captain's Island challenge, a legendary Caribbean adventure where crews can challenge for a share of a $15,000 bounty.
