Rebecca Hall: 'People Think I've Had It Easy'

9 November 2011 10:25 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

"I have an overactive imagination, and would have been thrilled to see a ghost. Instead, all I got was a boom operator with a cup of tea."

Rebecca Hall is remembering her time filming spooky Victorian ghost story The Awakening, with co-stars Dominic West and Imelda Staunton.

Hall's character is sent to dispel the notion of a haunting, before inevitably surrendering to the notion of spooks herself, but despite the gloomy surroundings - meant to be a remote boarding school for boys - as Hall puts it, "it's very difficult to act frightened. It's like food, you're either doing it or you're not."

Not even with the sight of West's bare bottom, spied through one of those wonderful holes in the wall common to all Victorian houses in film? "I never saw it," Hall says indignantly. "He didn't stand there for my bit."
