Right, yeah. That was a rough progression. Can you remember anything specific that might’ve been ad-libbed or added in the moment?
I don’t know how much of it I’m trying to think made it in. Just when he flips out in the office, and then he sort of flips out. He threw things. He moved furniture. He screamed at people. He ran about the room, and so every take was different. And so it was great. It was very helpful for my reaction and everyone else’s reaction because I genuinely didn’t know what Dylan, therefore the character, was going to do. So every reaction was authentic every time.There’s a part where I jump, and I genuinely jumped because yeah, I didn’t know what he was going to do.
Did you or Dylan do anything between takes to lighten the mood for these intense scenes?
Absolutely. We would go outside. We were shooting in, I think it was a hospital turned into a … I’m not even sure what it was, but it was just a very cold, large sort of office building. And the two of us as artists, I don’t spend a lot of time in offices, so we would go outside and gossip about — I can’t tell you what we gossiped about, but we have a lot of friends in common or some friends in common. And so it was nice to sort of just be able to discuss stuff outside of the heavy material that was the movie and also bond and get to know one another and trust one another. So when he had to go to those places, he had a friendly face in the room.
Right. Can you think of anything that might be in the blooper reel or something like that?
Oh, my goodness sakes. No. For myself, when I got scared, I ran into a wall twice, but I don’t think that made the blooper reel. I just tried to get out of his way and I ran directly into a wall. But I’m hoping that I didn’t make the reel.
I would like to see that.
So would I, because I did it twice. Not once.
Twice and it was the same wall.
