Film star Nicolas Cage broadcasts live from ruins of Glastonbury Abbey

There was a face-off with a difference for Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage this week.

The movie star used the stunning backdrop of Glastonbury Abbey for a live interview on a prime time American TV chat show.

It might, of course, have been prime time in the Big Apple, but in sleepy Glastonbury it was approaching 3am.

The actor, who owns a home in nearby Baltonsborough, gave the televised interview from the abbey ruins to ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Show to promote his latest film.

It was filmed in the early hours of the morning to allow for live transmission on the show.

The show's host Mr Kimmel "summoned" the actor, who has appeared in blockbusters such as The Rock, Con Air and Face/Off, with a magic wand, and he appeared on a TV screen in the studio, live from the abbey grounds.

"I am here in the very magical and sacred Glastonbury Abbey," said Mr Cage, pointing out where monks claimed the tomb of King Arthur and Queen Guinevere was found.

Mr Cage added it was 3am, much to the amusement of the studio audience. Mr Cage went on to say: "I couldn't think of a better place to launch the trailer for my new movie, The Sorcerer's Apprentice."

The film, released last week in the UK, stars Cage as Balthazar Blake, a master sorcerer in modern day Manhattan trying to defend the city from his arch-nemesis Maxim Horvath.

He recruits Dave Stutler to train as his protégé in the magical arts and defend the city.

Abbey director Katherine Gorbing said: "We were approached by the American TV company who asked if they could film the interview in the abbey. We were delighted to accept, but it was a very long day for our staff, who stayed up into the small hours.

"Mr Cage personally selected the abbey as the backdrop for his 3am satellite link-up.

"We were delighted to work with Mr Cage and help him promote his new film.

"It was wonderful to see one of Hollywood's finest actors broadcasting from one of the UK's oldest Christian sanctuaries and promoting Glastonbury Abbey and King Arthur's tomb to American viewers."
