The 'Philomena' actor, who spoofed 007 in his 2011 movie 'The Trip,' provided some light entertainment for his co-stars, including Dame Judi Dench, on the set of the new drama by imitating the suave secret agent between scenes.
Speaking at a special screening of the film at the Odeon cinema in Leicester Square for the 57th annual BFI London Film Festival on Wednesday night (10.16.13), the 48-year-old comedian exclusively told BANG Showbiz that he made sure there were plenty of funny moments on the set.
Steve, who plays a weary political journalist in the movie, who covers the story of a woman's search for her son decades after he was taken from her and was she forced to live in a convent, didn't find it difficult to play a more serious character.
He said: "In some ways it's easier playing a real person because you can use the fact that they've lived - they've done the research for you."
Meanwhile, director Stephen Frears joked he is tired of working with Dame Judi.
He said: "It's actually the fourth film I've done with her, so we're sick of the sight of each other! It's when you haven't got these great actresses that you're in trouble.
