Anthony Edwards has rubbished Thunderbirds creator GERRY ANDERSON's claims he was ignored during the making of the movie.

The former ER actor is furious Anderson complained his ideas for the big-screen version of the cult puppet TV show went unheard, insisting the reason he made little impact on the $82.8 million (GBP46 million) film is because his heart wasn't in it.

Edwards - who plays BRAINS - says, "The producers gave Gerry every chance to get involved in the film, but he wasn't interested.

"I know this from personal experience."
