Bridesmaids director Paul Feig joined Danny Clayton in the BUILD Sydney studio to chat about his new festive film Last Christmas, which stars the mother of dragons herself, Game Of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke.

Paul also took us back to his time as a stand-up comedian, his work with frequent collaborator Melissa McCarthy and how his short-lived but much-loved series Freaks and Geeks ‘changed TV comedy’.

The American filmmaker - who rebooted Ghostbusters 30 years after the original - also revealed what he really wants for Christmas: a brand-new President of the United States.

Check out the video below for his full interview.
