John Hurt: I thought Doctor Who fans would be loonies but they’re charming

via The Guardian:

You’re in Hungary shooting the $150m film Hercules: The Thracian Wars with Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson. Do you enjoy doing blockbusters?

Well, it used to mean that you got terrifically well paid, but it doesn’t mean that any more. Nobody gets terrifically well paid any more, except perhaps the star. But I have nothing against it. You know what you let yourself in for in these things. I can’t say that I wouldn’t prefer to make small films, basically because I think they are probably more interesting in terms of the material. But every now and again it’s quite good to do a big one.

How’s it going?

With a big film, it’s absolutely impossible to say… But of course we all sit around and have a good old moan. But what does an actor do when he gets given a nice part? He moans about it.

Your new film – More Than Honey, a documentary you narrate about the threat to bees – is at the other end of the scale in terms of size. Is it a subject you feel personally engaged with?

I do now. Like a lot of people, I didn’t realise the threat to bees worldwide and it had never occurred to me the importance of them. But it’s something mankind should be concerned about, because it’s very important for the planet. We do tend to behave so often in the most cavalier way.
