The 25-year-old man suffered a brain haemorrhage after his car crashed on a busy motorway in Staffordshire, West England.

He remained in a coma for six days before waking up with the belief he was the 45-year-old Interstellar actor.

The man, Rory Curtis, recalled looking in the mirror and being confused at his reflection, admitting, ''at times I was in hospital thinking 'I can't wait to get out of here and back to filming movies.'''

He also revealed how he was perplexed by his ability to suddenly hold a conversation in French, having not studied it for over 10 years.
