Tom Hardy didn't drink for three months while filming 2002's 'Star Trek: Nemesis' since he was ''terrified'' of the role.

The 36-year-old star, who played Praetor Shinzon in the sci-fi film, insists he was ''out of his depth'' and extremely worried about how he was going to portray his character, which forced him to put all his energy into focusing on doing a good job.

He explained: ''I was terrified. Everyday on that set, I was terrified - which worked for the character anyway. You can't hide that, the camera will pick it up. I was genuinely out of my depth. The whole thing was 'How can I do this?' I took it very seriously, with my technique. I didn't have a single drink when I did it - for three months. Friday night, nothing! I'd never been so focused in my life! I couldn't get the job done [otherwise].''

Hardy worked 17-hour days and was knackered by the time he got home, so all he wanted to do was sleep.

He told Total Film magazine: ''I was working 17-hour days. When I came back I just slept - I was just constantly at work. A lot of the Enterprise stuff was shot thre months prior to me coming out. So they'd already shot half the movie before I turned up. So it was like walk in, straight in, out the frying pan, into the fire, get on with it.''
