Simon Pegg has praised his Burke And Hare co-star Sir Christopher Lee as "an absolute gentleman".
The two actors star in the John Landis black comedy about a pair of murderous 19th century grave-diggers, which is based on a true story.
Pegg wrote on Twitter: "Just shot scenes with Sir Christopher Lee - 89 years old and insisted on sticking around for off camera lines, what an absolute gentleman."
The film, which is being filmed in Edinburgh, also stars Andy Serkis, Isla Fisher, Jessica Hynes, Tom Wilkinson, Hugh Bonneville and Tim Curry.
