Jessica Biel has admitted shooting at night is "pretty exhausting".

The A-Team star is filming mystery thriller The Tall Man in Canada, which involves many night-time shoots.

"Mainly a production at night is pretty exhausting - you have to turn your body clock around and sleep during the day and work challenging hours at night," she told The Hollywood Reporter.

"It never seems like your body has turned around, so you're always struggling against the schedule. But it creates a very kind of foreboding scary type of atmosphere on set. It's helpful for this type of movie."

She added: "What's challenging is getting the emotion that we need for this movie: the heightened sort of experience, the fear, the worry, the concern, the sadness of what's happening in this story. It's hard to get that going at two in the morning, or three or four in the morning."

Jessica plays a mother in a small town, whose life changes after her child disappears.

"The children are being taken from this town, and we don't know why. We don't know if it's an otherworldly being, or a person, that's taking the children," she explained.

"Then my child gets taken, and I actually see this being taking the child, and I spend the rest of the movie chasing this ghost-like creature that has taken my child. It's a story about a mother in distress, who will do anything to get her child back."
