Here's what Matthew had to say:

Matthew, it looked like you had a lot of fun with Oblonsky?

Matthew Macfadyen: Yeah, 90% of it was the moustache! It just sort of gave me a lift. No, it was a lot of fun.

Here's what Joe had to say about Matthew:

You’ve worked with Keira and Matthew before and, indeed, you work with a lot of people over and over again. Is that something deliberate?

Joe Wright: Definitely! I like the idea of a company atmosphere and I like working with the same actors and crew members – more so with crew. When Matthew [Macfadyen] was doing Pride & Prejudice he had to be very serious and sombre and I knew that there was another side of Matthew that I’d really like to engage with and so it seemed like a perfect opportunity for that.

Keira on Matthew:

How was being reunited with Matthew Macfadyen again but this time playing brother and sister?

Keira Knightley: We just giggled. I think it was because we were trying to learn to dance and initially it was just us together. And we just found it absolutely hysterical so we brought that into our brotherly and sisterly relationship.
