Michael Fassbender: I traveled here in 2007 to film scenes of the movie Eden Lake.
Paula Hamilton: After having been, so I said, sober for 7 years, I crashed my car into someone's house in 2012, while drunk driving. I lost my two front teeth in the accident, which I did not have replaced immediately, earning me much criticism over my new toothless appearance. However, I told reporters that I was lucky to have escaped losing only two teeth rather than my life.
