EXCLUSIVE: Patrick Gibson shares the wild night out he shared with The Portable Door co-star Sam Neill when they first met and reveals what it was like working with the actor on the film

Irish actor Patrick Gibson has spoken candidly about working on his new Stan fantasy film The Portable Door, alongside the likes of Sam Neill, Miranda Otto, Sophie Wilde and Christoph Waltz.

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia on Friday, the Shadow and Bone star, 27, said he had ‘so much fun’ shooting the film, which centres on his character landing an internship at a mystical and magical company in London. 

Patrick also recalled the first time he met Jurassic Park star Sam, 75, saying that Sam took him and some of the cast and crew to a local RSL club for a fun night out to help break the ice. 

The film was shot in Queensland, but is set in the U.K. 

‘My first time meeting Sam, we got texts in a group chat, and he was like, ”right we’re going to a RSL club” and we went to see a Queen tribute act,’ Patrick revealed. 

‘My first time meeting Sam, we were blaring bohemian Rhapsody!’

‘It was so much fun and the first time I’ve been to Australia. We had such an amazing crew. And so much talent working on it. And it’s so much fun to be back, Patrick added. 

Speaking about the star-studded cast, he jokingly said working with his co-stars was like a ‘nightmare’.

‘They’re a nightmare! It’s not all fairytales! No, it was all great and so much fun. Working with those guys really was and it was such a dream,’ he added.

Patrick is known for shows including The Tudors, The OA and Shadow and Bone. 

Speaking about his career, he said: ‘I haven’t really looked back that much.’

‘I think maybe to a fault we tend to focus on what’s next, but I’ve had so much fun on so many different things and different genres and dramatic things as well, but getting to do this was really special.’

‘I love fantasy stuff, especially stuff like this that’s grounded in the real world and has that magical realism element,’ he said. 

One of the film’s themes is the idea that ‘nothing is a coincidence’ and Patrick said it adds an interesting layer into the film.

‘I’m pretty open minded about that stuff, I’m fascinated about what goes on underneath everything we see. Adding that element into a fantasy story is really fun.’ 

 The Stan original film The Portable Door premieres April 7 on Stan.  

The film also stars Miranda Otto, who looked incredible at the premiere in Sydney on Thursday
