The Twilight actress, Ashley Greene has said that she found working with co-star Alan Rickman on the new film CBGB "inspiring".

Randall Miller's film follows Rickman's character Hilly Kristal, who set up the CBGB music club in New York for new musicians in 1973.

In an interview with Collider.com, she said: "It was phenomenal, working with [Alan]. It's always a really great thing to have an actor that does make you want to up your game. It naturally motivates you to do and try things that maybe you wouldn't necessarily do or try.

"And he was very, very supportive, and it was very safe. You never know, when you're going in to work with people, especially of his calibre, if they're gonna be friendly or judgmental, or what have you.

"There's a ton of insecurities that go into my head, before I start working with someone."

The 26-year-old plays Rickman's daughter Lisa in the film and she added: "For me, it's a really exciting thing to be able to help portray this moment in time at this establishment that was such a big piece and part of people's lives.

"I think that music is a very, very powerful thing, especially when you have a movement like this to shed new light on music and the power of it. So, it was a no-brainer for me to hop on."
