Noel Clarke has revealed he was shocked by Ian Somerhalder's enthusiasm for action scenes in 'The Anomaly' as he thought he was too much of a ''pretty boy''.
The 'Doctor Who' actor, who stars in and directs the film, says Somerhalder - who is best known for playing charming vampire Damon Salvatore in 'The Vampire Diaries' - takes on a new kind of villain role and was better at action scenes than he was anticipating.
Speaking at a special screening of the film at London's Ham Yard Hotel last night (01.07.14), Clarke told BANG Showbiz: ''People weren't expecting him [Somerhalder] to be physical because he's quite a pretty boy, but he was a dude and got in there and did all the fight scenes. He was great.''
The 38-year-old star - whose other directing credits include 2010's '220.127.116.11' and 2008's 'Adulthood' - also admits he was inspired by J.J. Abrams to do more filmmaking after working with him on 'Star Trek Into Darkness.'
He said: ''J.J. is a very inspirational guy. He leads from the front and has a positive energy on set. When you have someone like that at the top, it filters on down through the crew.''
'The Anomaly' tells the story of a former soldier - played by Clarke - who is taken captive and awakens in the back of a van where he learns that he only has a few moments to figure out how he got there.
The film is set for UK release on Friday (04.07.14).
