Antonio Banderas Antonio Banderas showed off his swashbuckling skills on British TV on Friday night by giving presenter Graham Norton a swordfighting lesson.

"The Mask of Zorro" actor and Salma Hayek were the star guests on the host's BBC chat show to promote their new movie "Puss In Boots."

Banderas voices the adventurous sword-toting feline in the film, and he was presented with a blade by Norton during the interview to show off his skills.

He declared, "Who am I going to swordfight against?" before convincing Norton to limber up too.

Banderas explained, "There are seven positions. You put your leg here... comfortable and light."

The actor then demonstrated several different sequences, including balancing the sword on his foot before throwing it into the air and catching it.
