Jamie Bell: 'I desperately wanted to be Tintin'

More than 80 years since Tintin first appeared in print in Belgium, the roving boy reporter has been transformed for the big screen by Steven Spielberg.

Creator and illustrator Herge's pen lines have been brought to life by 3D and performance capture techniques, in an animated movie that takes the comic book hero firmly off the page.

Jamie Bell, who plays Tintin, told BBC Breakfast how the technology worked. He also hinted at a possible sequel.
