Dane Dehaan - Dane DeHaan: Filming Life after Beth was terrifying

Dane DeHaan found filming 'Life After Beth' ''terrifying''.

The 27-year-old actor - who was catapulted to the spotlight as Andrew in 2012's 'Chronicle' and has since been cast in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' and 'Kill Your Darlings' - has worked on ''pretty intense'' movies and consequently he found the forthcoming comedy a ''challenge'' as it wasn't an environment he was familiar with.

He explained: ''It was great. I filmed it about two weeks after 'Spider-Man', which was a pretty intense process, and at that point I had gone through about three and a half years straight of doing pretty intense stuff. So all of a sudden I found myself on set with Aubrey Plaza and John C. Reilly and Molly Shannon and all these people that I just find hilarious.

''I'm always looking for ways to challenge myself, and ways to do things that are kind of scary, and I think having to be in a comedy with people that funny was one of the most terrifying experiences I've had.''

DeHaan is up for the Rising Star Award at this year's BAFTAs, alongside George MacKay, Lupita Nyong'o, Will Poulter and Léa Seydoux and is delighted to be recognised in the film industry.

He told DigitalSpy.com: ''I think it's definitely a perk of the job that I get to do this thing I love to do, and then people love to watch me do it, and then sometimes you even get awards for it! The whole thing is nothing to complain about, that's for sure.''
