Timothy Spall Q&A
Q. You've been working with the cream of Hollywood almost
Q. Are we going to lose you to America, because you crop
up so often in Hollywood movies, and you seem to do so well in
A. Well, no, because it's not all the time, I can still
live in London, but I do love the experience of working over there
and it's very enjoyable that I live in London. But due to the
marvellous advances of the jet engine, you can get to places quite

Q. Jim has alluded to the fact there is going to be tonnes
of stuff on the DVD? Is this true?

Q. Who was the arachnophobe on-set? And how about the
room full of snakes?
A. It's amazing, what you're seeing in the picture actually
is a room filled with real live snakes. We had a CG friend with
us, which was the incredibly deadly viper, because we couldn't
find one in time. But that set was not a place for the faint of
heart. We had this fantastic snake professor. Everything you see
