Two of the main stars of The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep were in Los Angeles recently and Sony Pictures invited us to interview the two main stars of the film: Alex Etel and Ben Chaplin.

The fantasy-adventure, which will be released on December 25, is based on the children's novel by British author Dick King-Smith. The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep tells the story of a lonely boy in Scotland who finds a mysterious egg from which hatches a "water horse" -- a mythical sea monster (i.e. a.k.a. The Loch Ness monster) of Scottish legend.
