Steve Coogan has been speaking of how he went to the depths of hell for his most recent movie role.
Funnyman Steve - who is returning to TV in a new BBC2 series - played Hades, god of the underworld, in fantasy adventure Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, now out on DVD and Blu-ray.
Hades' hellish lair was located underneath Hollywood in the film, based on Rick Riordan's children's books and starring Logan Lerman as a troubled schoolboy who finds out his father is Poseidon. Also in the film are Sean Bean as Zeus, Uma Thurman as Medusa and Pierce Brosnan as Chiron the centaur.
Coogan described his role as "a doddle". He said: "I got to turn up, spend a week in Vancouver, I got to kiss Rosario Dawson who played my wife Persephone, and when you've got all these visual effects around you half of the job is done for you. »
