Saw 3D's Costas Mandylor gave himself a boozy send-off after filming his final scenes with the horror franchise.

The actor who plays Mark Hoffman, successor to the Jigsaw Killer, has hazy memories of his last day of shooting.

"We were in an ugly, disgusting junk yard. We started work at seven at night and everybody was smoking, swearing, joking, complaining, working until about nine in the morning and it was pouring with rain and freezing," he explained.

"Then at the end of that usually you want to go home to bed but it was the last day so I went into the trailer with the crew - bourbon, tequila - it was really, really freezing cold and dark and dreary so when that happens there's not guilt involved. It was fun!" Costas laughed.

Speaking in Hollywood, the Aussie star revealed how filmmakers had him watched by security after he'd accidentally let slip he planned on pinching a memento to remember the shoot.

"I was trying to steal everything but everybody had their eye on me," he laughed.

He went on: "I'd opened my mouth and said 'you know what? I'm going to take something' and after that I was being followed. [I got] nothing, I think I got a t-shirt!"
