Kaya Scodelario has heaped praise on co-star Jessica Biel.

The pair team up for Emanuel And The Truth About Fishes and the British star admits that she was worried that Biel would a diva - however she turned out to be the complete opposite.

Speaking to the Press Association the actress said: "She was very, very lovely. I didn't know who was cast at first and I was really worried that it would be some diva American actress that would put me off ever wanting to act, but she was really sweet, a real person.

"She was very motherly, she looked after me a lot and made sure I was comfortable.

"I was away from home for the first time working so she made sure everything was OK with my hotel and I knew where to eat and stuff like that. She was really sweet."

Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes is the latest role for Scodelario as the movie marks the return to the director's chair for Francesca Gregorini.

Scodelario takes on the role of Emanuel in the film and is joined on the cast list by Biel, Alfred Molina and Frances O'Connor.

Scodelario really has been making a name for herself in recent years and she has a string of movies in the pipeline including Stay With Me and Invisible.
