Clive Owen has opened up about his childhood fears of terrorist attacks.
The Duplicity star spoke about his new film Shadow Dancer, which is set in Northern Ireland at the height of the Troubles.
He admitted that the conflict formed a part of his own childhood, and said he lived in fear of a terrorist attack by the Irish Republican Army.
"I grew up with it being part of our lives and every night hearing some report on the news about the Troubles," he told The Independent. "[It was] rough… It was a war zone.
"I remember going out in the evenings and it was disconcerting what was happening on the streets," he continued. "They'd do these drills where the vans pull up and the soldiers all jump out and hit their positions and the first time I saw that, I seriously thought, 'I'm in the middle of a situation'."
In May, Owen was forced to cancel several appointments at the Cannes Film Festival after becoming trapped in a lift with his daughters.
