Christian Slater plays a powerful hacker in acclaimed drama Mr Robot - and he admits that getting hacked for real is "a huge concern".

Slater told Digital Spy that he was troubled by the activities of real-life hackers, after seeing other stars be "horribly taken advantage of - their privacy completely betrayed".

The Heathers and Pump Up the Volume actor is at his anarchic best in Mr Robot, which charts his title character's relationship with fellow hacker Elliot (Rami Malek).

All 10 episodes of Mr Robot are coming exclusively to Amazon Prime, this Friday (October 16).

Originally envisioned as a film by creator Sam Esmail, the series has received widespread acclaim from critics.
