A wide-array of topics were covered between the pair, including how Ejiofor was able to get in character as Solomon Northup, the free man who was kidnapped into slavery in 1841 and later wrote a memoir about his tortured experience as a slave. Watch Ejiofor, who's expected to earn a Best Actor nomination at the Academy Awards next year, talk about one of the film's most harrowing scenes, a near-fatal hanging of Northup, in the video above.
