Peter Dinklage: Working with Elle Fanning is heaven

Peter Dinklage says working with Elle Fanning is "heaven".

The 49-year-old actor and Elle, 20, star alongside each other in the new indie drama 'I Think We're Alone Now', and Peter has admitted to relishing the experience of working with the young actress.

He explained: "Working with just one other actor quite possibly could have been hell. But it wasn't hell, it was Elle. Elle is heaven.

"Having worked with her before, you also wanna work with somebody that you have a good relationship with and can have fun with. This movie is so intimate and small, and there were very few people in the cast and crew, so we needed the right people on board."

The film tells the story of two people who find themselves unlikely companions in the aftermath of an apocalypse.

Elle loved her role in the Reed Morano-directed film, admitting her character Grace shares some similarities with her real-life self.

She told Collider: "This set was the most joyous, funny set, ever, even though there's definitely a serious mood in the movie. It was just so, so, so much fun.

"Also, with the character of Grace, I was just so intrigued by the possibilities of what she could be.

"Reed and I were really excited to explore that, and to explore the side of myself which is really silly. I'm a very wacky person, which I don't think I get to show as much, so I actually feel like Grace is the most similar character to my real personality that I've ever played before. I loved getting to explore that."
