Godzilla director Gareth Edwards was struck with crippling panic attacks on the set of the monster movie after he was plucked from obscurity and thrust into the Hollywood limelight.
The British filmmaker caught the eye of Tinseltown producers with his low-budget debut, Monsters, and was stunned when he was asked to helm the blockbuster remake.
The offer was the fulfilment of a lifelong dream for Edwards, but the severe pressure of walking onto the set to work with stars such as Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Juliette Binoche sparked anxiety attacks.
Edwards tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "I really felt overwhelmed, but then I thought about how I'd worked all my life to get to this point and that I couldn't turn it down.
"Making the film turned out to be the hardest thing I've ever done, mainly because of the pressure I put myself under. Panic would come and go all the time and I controlled that by telling myself, 'If this is the only thing I ever do in my life, I've got to go out in a blaze of glory'."
