It's always good for actors and directors to get along on the set of a film; it keeps everyone involved in a good state of mind, and can lead to a better finished product than if everyone is at each other's throats. But simply getting along is one thing, and being in absolute awe of the people you are working with. Recently, actor Joel Edgerton, who played Ramses in the recently release 'Exodus: Gods and Men', revealed how much he idolised director Ridley Scott on the set of the film.

"Just meeting Ridley [Scott] at all was impressive for me. I've just admired his work for so many years - so many of his movies. So I was very chuffed just to meet him." The two must have gotten on quite well, as Edgerton revealed that the two spent the day working together, before Scott had dinner with him later. "I had a dinner with him the first night we met, and it was funny, because we spent the day playing dress-ups - literally - and then the evening, having a dinner and hearing his stories, y'know, I felt very honoured to get a chance to work with him."

Edgerton went on to express his amazement for working with Scott, by explaining: "Watching him work and just seeing how visually spectacular and detailed he was, how organised he was, how much like a general he was, in creating this environment on the set where everybody wanted to go to battle with him in a really great way, on his side, unified to create this great vision of his."

The actor continued to praise Scott and his directing style, saying: "He was so decisive, organised, creative, fun to be around, and watching the fact that for him, making movies was kind of like breathing. He made it seem so easy."
