Greta: Thursday's star guest

Hollywood actress Greta Scacchi joins Dermot and Natasha for a chat about her latest film: "Beyond the Sea."

The film stars Kevin Spacey and Kate Bosworth.

It is about Bobby Darin, one of the most popular rock and roll teen idols of the late '50s, whose astounding career continued almost unabated through the 1960s.

Greta Scacchi plays Darin's mother-in-law.

    Although he was a teen idol of the late fifties and early sixties, Bobby Darin never enjoyed good health.

    After a bout of rheumatic fever as a child, he wasn't expected by his family to live beyond the age of fifteen.

    Beyond the Sea charts his career from the perspective of his final performance - he died at the age of 37.

    Co-written and directed by Kevin Spacey, it's one of a number of biopics to hit the screens recently.

    It'll face stiff competition in next year's Oscar awards from Ray - about the singer Ray Charles.
