Audiences won't actually see James Spader's face in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but they'll certainly recognize his voice. What fans may not realize, however, is that the 55-year-old actor filmed the robot's movements, too.
E! News' Alicia Quarles exclusively interviewed the cast on set in London last summer. Spader had filmed his first scene in April, when he was shooting the first season of NBC's The Blacklist. "I had to come in to do a sequence with Scarlett Johansson. So I flew in, quickly did a sort of introductory tutorial on the process, and then the next day shot the sequence and then back to The Blacklist."
How did it feel to bring the android to life, so to speak?
"It was great, actually. The technology was such that I put on the suit and you do a range of motion," the three-time Emmy Award winner said. "They record the range of motion with all the markers on and all the transmitters and everything, and then they sort of plug it into some program. I would move and I could watch it live as Ultron. And that's the first time I stood up a little straighter."
