Michael Fassbender was in attendance at the Montreal Formula 1 Grand Prix when pitlane reporter Eddie Jordan caught up with him and exchanged a cúpla focal!

Fassbender was greeted in Irish by the ex-Jordan Grand Prix boss and was not phased by it or caught unaware, replying immediately.

Although his knowledge of the Irish language should come as no surprise as despite being German born, the X-Men actor is as Irish as they come. Fassbender was brought up and educated for much of his early life in Killarney, Co. Kerry and according to his family lore it is said his mother is the great-great niece of Michael Collins.

The double sequel, directed by Bryan Singer and featuring an all-star cast of Fassbender, James McAvoy, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen is due for release in July 2014.
