Michael Fassbender admits he felt the ''pressure'' when working with Ridley Scott.
The actor teamed up with the 'Alien' director in new sci-fi movie 'Prometheus' and he says he had a ''healthy amount of fear'' before starting work because he has so much respect for Scott.
He said: ''You're very much aware of that and that it is Ridley and that it is this world and there is that pressure, but that's good. That gives you a healthy amount of fear and then like I said I try to get all of the preparation squared away and then on set really try to have fun.''
However, Fassbender says the most important thing about the movie - which also stars Charlize Theron and Guy Pearce - was enjoying playing the character and having fun.
He told Collider.com: ''I knew that I wanted to have fun with this character. I really wanted to enjoy it and Ridley and I seemed to click immediately in terms of what was going on with the character and the freedom to try things out with him and to find the humour in there. I said to him, 'This guy is funny, right?' He was like 'Yes. Great. Let's go for it.' So yeah, that was the main thing, to really enjoy him.''
