An action romp in the Bourne/Bond mould, Bastille Day brings together Stringer Bell and Robb Stark – Idris Elba and Richard Madden, respectively – for an explosive thrill-ride incorporating pickpockets, corrupt cops and hashtags, across the streets and rooftops of Paris.

We chatted to the two stars about their action movie influences, getting into shape, and which of their TV characters had the best death.

PS: we're pretty sure Idris meant to say 'Matt Damon', not 'Matt Dillon'. But we'll let him off.

Bastille Day is now showing in UK cinemas – read the Empire review here.
