British actor Bill Nighy can't wait to reprise his role in the upcoming sequel to vampire movie Underworld, but he's apprehensive about the extensive make-up he has to wear.

Filming on the fantasy follow-up will begin in the new year (05), with Kate Beckinsale also reprising her role as vampire warrior SELENE.

Nighy says, "I'm really looking forward to reprising my role as a 5,000-year-old vampire.

"It's going to be great fun. The only problem is that they make me dress up in latex - cover my face in it.

"I look great by it means nobody wants to go out for lunch with me."
