Nicholas Hoult: Filming Mad Max: Fury Road was like being on the moon

May 13th, 2015

Nicholas Hoult felt like he was ''on the moon'' while filming 'Mad Max: Fury Road'.

The 25-year-old actor, who stars alongside Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron in the new sci-fi movie, has revealed how filming 'Mad Max' in Namibia in South Africa made it a unique experience.

He explained to Time Out London magazine: ''It felt like you were on the moon most days. It's an isolated place, and literally 360 degrees around you, all you could see was the horizon and heat shimmer.

''Then a crew of about 700 people would roll in from nowhere and spend the day driving an armada of vehicles around, blowing stuff up. A lot of the time blockbuster movies are very safe and even though I'm in it, I think this is one of the most original things I've seen.

''You felt that on set - you'd turn up in this stark landscape with all these incredible creations all around.''

Meanwhile, Nicholas - who's set to star in 'X-Men: Apocalypse' in 2016 - recently revealed he'd like to continue with the franchise, even though he's only committed to one more movie.

He said: ''This is the last one I'm signed up for.

''The first one did so well and [X-Men: Days of Future Past] got received so brilliantly. I have a good time playing [Beast] so I'd keep making them.''
