There are a lot of names squeezed onto The Expendables 3 poster, equalled by the number of expansive biceps and pearly smiles. So many in fact that it's easy to miss the slight figure of one Antonio Banderas.

While still capable of performing the majority of his own stunts, the 54-year-old hasn't muscled into the considerable cast for his action credentials. Playing the relentlessly talkative Galgo, Banderas easily outshines the explosive set pieces with his self deprecating humour and stumbling efforts to be seen as one of "the guys".

We spoke to Antonio ahead of the release of The Expendables 3 to find out whether he made any new rivalries with fellow cast members, discover whose stunt man had to work the hardest and discuss the changing technology of modern movies.

The Expendables 3 is out on 14 August
