VirginMedia Sam Riley: 'Kristen Stewart is great to work with'
Sam Riley loved working with Kristen Stewart in 'On the Road'. The British actor takes on the lead role of Sal Paradise - who leaves his aunt's house in New York to go on a road trip across the US - in the big screen adaptation of Jack Kerouac's 1957 novel and he Kristen who plays disaffected drifter Marylou is "a really cool girl".
He said: "Working with Kristen was great - she's a fantastic actress and a really cool girl."
Although Sam loved working with his co-stars - who also include Amy Adams, Viggo Mortensen and Garrett Hedlund - he admitted he was worried about taking on such an iconic role but felt he couldn't turn down such a great opportunity. He told BANG Showbiz: "I don't know when it's coming out but I'm excited about it. I was a bit scared taking on such a big role. I don't know why though because I kept asking for it.
"If you get offered a part like that you can't say no to it no matter how intimidating it is."

nextmovie Exclusive Q and A: Tom Sturridge ‘Forever’ After
Speaking of your gorgeous co-stars, how has working with Kristen Stewart on the set of “On the Road” been?
Tom: It was so terrifying entering into that world and what was great was just having someone that I knew and actually working with her. She’s just a f**king extraordinary actress, just really, really extraordinary and it’s astonishing just to see her do her job.
And how was shooting otherwise?
Tom: It was genuinely, one of the deepest working experiences I’ve ever had. It was extraordinary.
What was so extraordinary about it?
Tom: Well, firstly to be a part of that group to take on the filming of that novel – just to be a part of it is pretty f**king incredible in itself. And working with Walter Salles, who I think is one of the greatest directors alive, and then working with these actors who, to me, are the best actors working today and together trying to do justice to what is such a phenomenal novel. It was kind of amazing, and we were shooting for six months, we rehearsed for a month. It was such a massive part of my life.
