Blackman can't watch her own film

31 August 2012

Honor Blackman has revealed that she can't bear to watch Cockneys Vs Zombies - despite starring in it.

The 87-year-old actress plays a grandmother who has to fight off the walking dead when the care home is invaded by zombies in Matthias Hoene's black comedy, which also stars Michelle Ryan, Alan Ford and Harry Treadaway.

"My daughter can sit and watch it and not turn a hair, but I can't bear it. I shan't look! I don't like it - they are horrific," she said.

Honor - best known for playing Cathy Gale in The Avengers and Pussy Galore in Goldfinger - quipped that she was almost tempted to use her judo skills, which she learned for her Avengers role.

"It was the most peculiar film. My judo almost came back to me because I had to kill so many zombies. I've never worked with anything like that before," she said.

"It was quite hard but enjoyable. I had a big block of wood and I was bashing everybody on the head. It was just hilarious. I had a good time because there were such good actors in it."

Honor admitted that one scene in particular left her a bit green.

"There was one terrible scene where I had to push some glass into a zombie's eye and I thought, I don't think I'm going to be able to bear it. I saw the false eye all red and covered with glass, and I was horrified so we had to fake it," she recalled.

Cockneys Vs Zombies is in cinemas now.
