Unknown Scot on naked scene with Scarlett Johansson

Wednesday May 23, 2012

Scottish newcomer Paul Brannigan has confessed he was "quite nervous" before getting naked in front of Scarlett Johansson for new Ken Loach comedy The Angels' Share.

The unemployed Glaswegian plays a man seduced by an alien (played by Scarlett) who visits Scotland in human form.

Paul, 25, said of the love scene: "I took my clothes off - she didn't take her clothes off. It was fun. She was an absolutely fantastic girl. I was quite nervous at first, but once I got to talk to her, she was fine."

But the actor admitted there was no escaping the fact Avengers Assemble's Scarlett was a huge star.

"She had her own bodyguards," he quipped. "I had an umbrella."

Paul - at the Cannes Film Festival to promote the movie, revealed he almost didn't land the role.

"The first and second auditions they called me for, I didn't go. I wasn't really up for it," he explained.

"Things were tough, I had no money, it was Christmas time, and I'd got a loan I wanted to pay back. I thought, well if I make a couple of hundred quid that will see me through."
