On whether he’s a serious gamer, in advance of Assassin’s Creed, out next month: “The last time I had a serious stint with video games was 2000. There was a period of time where I was working in this warehouse at night. I would come home in the morning and just sit down in front of this racing game—I can’t even remember the name of it—and play it over and over.”

Fassbender on his family, and how they help him act out emotionally charged scenes: “They’re very much a part of who I am. Somebody was asking me…when I do emotional scenes, how do I go about getting there? What I do more often than not is pray to relatives who are gone. I feel like they are there with me. There are times in life where I’ve just thought, Somebody was looking after me there. Somebody was looking out for me.”

On playing Steve Jobs: “I always liked him. I never wanted to represent him in a vile way. When I watch [the film] now, I just see someone who found it difficult to come to terms with other people.”
