Michael Fassbender is just three weeks into shooting director Ridley Scott's Alien spin-off Prometheus, and he already feels as though he is making a science fiction masterpiece.

The actor took a few minutes out of his schedule to talk about the production. This is what he said.

"I walk on the set and I feel like I'm walking on a spaceship. It's breathtaking. All the various panels and screens and it's just dealing with a top-notch art department and carpenters and the riggers and everything that goes into putting that together. It's just, well, breathtaking, all of it."

Michael Fassbender also talked about creating his Prometheus character for the screen.

"I feel I've got it at my fingertips, it's there but challenging and, you know, I'm excited. I've got a few ideas that I'm running with and I think I've got a grasp on it but it's always something that, organically, moving on its own course. I'm having a lot of fun with it. There's a lot of interesting quirks and niches to him and I'm having a lot of fun exploring it. (Ridley Scott is) just so precise and fun and mischievous and just full of interesting and quirky ideas for the character. They come to you in passing but then he lets you run with it and there's a lot of freedom there. I'm really just enjoying it and everything in general, the whole crew is so veteran and talented from all departments down, the camera, wardrobe, makeup, props, the works - you've got the cream of the crop and it's an honor just to be allowed to be part of it."
