Denzel is so down to earth, says co-star Liam

AWARD-winning actor Liam Cunningham has revealed that Hollywood star Denzel Washington is not so tough as he appears on the big screen.

He might be known for his tough guy image from movies such as American Gangster and Training Day but Liam says Denzel is a very down to earth guy.

The Irish actor stars alongside the Oscar winner in the new action thriller Safe House, which also features Ryan Reynolds. Speaking to the Diary, Liam says the pair spoke about missing their families while they were on location in Cape Town, South Africa.

"I was in Cape Town with Denzel and it was pretty cool. I filmed a little bit with him at the start of the movie, he's a gorgeous fella, a really lovely guy. Honestly we were just talking about our kids, not very rock' n'roll," he laughed.

Despite getting on like a house on fire, Liam (50) says he gets nervous before he meets some of the bigger Hollywood stars.

"I do get nervous but most of the guys that have been at it as long as we have are usually good guys," he explained.

Meanwhile the talented actor revealed his joy at filming Game Of Thrones in Ireland. The HBO series is shot in Belfast and Liam says it's nice to be working in his home country for once.

"Filming in Ireland is just perfect. There's no planes, which is great. I miss my family and I never get used to being away from them. It's hard but that's the way it is when you're an actor," he admitted.
