Michael Fassbender on filming Macbeth on Isle of Skye

Michael Fassbender has described how he approached playing Macbeth by imagining him as a man suffering from post-traumatic stress.

Speaking to Andrew Marr, he said that realisation was a "fantastic key" to help get into the character.

He also described the "relentless" weather conditions during the filming on the Isle of Skye, which included filming barefoot wearing only a nightshirt.
