Q: Is it difficult promoting The Bounty Hunter around Europe with all the paparazzi attention?
A: They'll take 10,000 photographs in one day and wait for that moment where you have a hug, or you look at each other in a certain way, or then more individually, that you, you know, it's the time you scratch your nose, and that's nosepicking. They wait and you don't realise it, think you get away with it. Then suddenly you make that one move and they go,'Yah! Got you, you b******'.
Q: Is it more challenging doing the voice of an animated character in this film than acting in, say, The Bounty Hunter?
A: Yes. You don't have the physical environment that you would generally have if you were a Viking and you were surrounded by dragons. Actually, you're always standing in the same place surrounded by the same people. There's not that many of them and you're in a dark room. You don't have the other actors.
Q: Your Robert Burns project is still set to be made. Will it be in the language of his poetry?
A: We're staying with the language, which is one of the reasons it's tough to make because, if it's just his poetry, much is just beautiful language. A lot of people would not have a clue what he's talking about. But if you can bring it within the context of the story and it comes out like the perfect music at that time, then that's what we've been trying to do. But it won't be too much about the poetry.
