Michael Fassbender admits to Macbeth doubts

May 25, 2014

The X-Men star portrays the anti-hero in Justin Kurzel's big screen adaptation of William Shakespeare's play, alongside Marion Cotillard as Lady Macbeth.

"(It was) scary. I hope I did justice to it. It's pretty big boots to fill," he said.

Actors who have previously played Macbeth on stage and film include Orson Welles, Sir Ian McKellen, Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Kenneth Branagh.

The drama, which is set for release in 2015, also stars Southcliffe's Bafta-winning actor Sean Harris as Macduff, Elizabeth Debicki as Lady Macduff and Paddy Considine as Macbeth's ally Banquo.
