'Transporter: Refueled' star Ed Skrein takes AOL on a full-throttle ride
By MARAH ALINDOGAN
Move over James Bond – there's a new sheriff in town.
AOL rode shotgun with hunky actor Ed Skrein as he dished on his leading role in the action-packed thriller "The Transporter: Refueled," and it's safe to say he left us on the edge of our seats – literally!
The handsome star plays Frank Martin, a former special-ops mercenary whose life is turned upside down when he is forced to orchestrate the bank heist of the century by a cunning femme-fatale looking to get revenge on a Russian kingpin.
Frank and his squad of sexy women zoom through France in even sexier cars at insane speeds that give "Fast and Furious" a run for its money.
While working with unbelievably seductive chicks is certainly no easy task, the actor confessed he had his eye on something else.
"I love this car. This is like the Robin to my Batman," the 32-year-old gushed while driving behind the wheel of an insanely fast stunt car during an exclusive interview with AOL.
But fear not ladies, the dreamy celeb promised he did not put himself in harms way.
"It was a nightmare for the stunt team because this car is too safe," Skrein revealed.
Believe it or not, the British model-turned-actor is also an alum of hit HBO show "Game of Thrones." And even with all the attention the rising actor is getting, Skrein insists he's still the same ole' guy.
"It's in one ear and out the other really," Skrein wisely said. "I'm in this for the craft. Compliments are nice, but they don't really change anything."
Humble and good looks? We'll take it! Before we let Skrein speed away we made him answer some rapid-fire questions to get to know the real Ed. See AOL's high-speed convo with Ed Skrein in the video above!
