Michael Fassbender is a man of many talents—and now he’s taken on Macbeth—one of Shakespeare’s greatest characters.

The new Macbeth film, directed by Justin Kurzel, won’t be out until next year but Fassbender’s co-star, Marion Cotillard, who plays the formidable Lady Macbeth, found working opposite him a little unpredictable—but in a positive way. “He surprised me which is something very special on a set. Sometimes I didn’t know what he would do, and I was surprised many times,” says the actress.

Right now the French actress can be seen starring opposite Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner in The Immigrant in which she plays a Polish woman who arrives at Ellis Island in New York in the 1920s to begin a new life in the New World.
