Ben Kingsley on Playing The Mandarin

Ben Kingsley shares how he came up with his character and  what role the Iron Man 3 costume and make-up crew had in The Mandarin. "My input was more physical and vocal and imaginative but the exterior was all of their making, the samurai hair, the Chinese coat, the American dog-tags, t-shirts, American fatigues, boots, a cultural nightmare to look at," added Ben.
