Nicholas Hoult: Filming Mad Max: Fury Road was like being on the moon

Nicholas Hoult felt like he was "on the moon" while filming 'Mad Max: Fury Road'.

The 25-year-old actor, who stars alongside Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron in the new sci-fi movie, has revealed how filming 'Mad Max' in Namibia in South Africa made it a unique experience.

He explained to Time Out London magazine: "It felt like you were on the moon most days. It's an isolated place, and literally 360 degrees around you, all you could see was the horizon and heat shimmer.

"Then a crew of about 700 people would roll in from nowhere and spend the day driving an armada of vehicles around, blowing stuff up. A lot of the time blockbuster movies are very safe and even though I'm in it, I think this is one of the most original things I've seen.

"You felt that on set - you'd turn up in this stark landscape with all these incredible creations all around."

Meanwhile, Nicholas - who's set to star in 'X-Men: Apocalypse' in 2016 - recently revealed he'd like to continue with the franchise, even though he's only committed to one more movie.

He said: "This is the last one I'm signed up for.

"The first one did so well and [X-Men: Days of Future Past] got received so brilliantly. I have a good time playing [Beast] so I'd keep making them."
