"It's a lot of pressure... I was excited. I was excited," he added.

Colin and his co-stars were invited to the 50th anniversary of the moon landing in Cape Canaveral.

At the event, the cast and crew were introduced to a room of astronauts, "It was a surreal experience."

Sarina went on to ask Colin about his career and how he deals with rejection.

He admitted, "It can be incredibly difficult, the amount of times I was about to give up..."

"Then you have to realise, most of the time it's not about you... sometimes the director has a specific person in mind..."
