Taylor Schilling has said that she really enjoyed working with Zac Efron in The Lucky One.

Efron stars in The Lucky One as a marine who feels he was kept alive while serving in Iraq because he found a picture of a beautiful blonde woman (Schilling).

Speaking about the film with Flicks and Bits, Schilling said she felt incredibly lucky to play such a "challenging" character.

"I thought that Beth was such a fantastic character," she said. "Sometimes you read things and you have an initial hit on them, and this woman is pretty different to anything I've ever played for a while."

She continued: "I really got a feel for her right off the page. It felt so close to my heart and challenging, it pushed me to new places. It was exciting, scary... and a huge journey for me as a person.

"My character goes on a pretty intense journey in The Lucky One, so there was a lot to play with as an actor and a lot to sink my teeth into."

Blythe Danner and Jay R Ferguson also star in The Lucky One, which is directed by Hearts in Atlantis helmer Scott Hicks.

The Lucky One opens on April 20 in US cinemas and in the UK on May 2.
