It's always a good experience for an actor when they get to meet another actor who they have so much chemistry with, and especially when they get to see them at work first hand. Woody Harrelson was mindblown by co-star Laura Dern on the set of Craig Johnson's 'Wilson'.

Harrelson plays the titular lead character; an overly honest and neurotic man who talks to strangers a lot to overcome his loneliness. He's been a broken man ever since his wife Pippi (played by Laura Dern) left him 17 years previously, but finds new hope when he discovers that he may have a secret daughter who was put into foster care. 

'It was cool because as the character I fell in love with Laura Dern', he said at the film's premiere. 'She is such an incredible actress, she's so completely immersed in what she's doing. So believable, every moment. We had this incredible time together.'

'Wilson' is based on a graphic novel by Daniel Clowes, who also went on to write the screenplay. The film also stars Judy Greer, who Woody admits also 'blew his mind' even though he thought he was already 'too nuts about Laura'.

Earlier this year Woody Harrelson starred in the world's first ever live feature film, documenting his adventures around London in 'Lost in London' which aired in January and also starred Owen Wilson. He has also completed filming on Destin Daniel Cretton drama 'The Glass Castle' starring Brie Larson and Naomi Watts, as well as Rob Reiner's Iraq war thriller 'Shock and Awe' and 'War for the Planet of the Apes'.

Meanwhile, Laura Dern's latest project has been the TV mini-series 'Big Little Lies'. She is also set to appear in Jennifer Fox's 'The Tale', an episode of the 'Twin Peaks' revival and 'Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi'.

'Wilson' is released in theatres on March 24th 2017.
