Fiennes: How Rowling helped bring Dickens to the screen

2 February 2014 Last updated at 11:50 GMT

Actor Ralph Fiennes says his roles in movies such as the Harry Potter franchise have helped him finance his second film as a director.

The film, The Invisible Woman, tells the story of Charles Dickens's pursuit of an affair, and Mr Fiennes told Andrew Marr the money raised to make it depended on his relevance with the film world's "money men" by taking roles such as Lord Voldemort and the new 'M' in the James Bond series.

You can watch The Andrew Marr Show in full on the BBC iPlayer.
