It sounds weird but there’s no denying the fact that some of the most gory and scary scenes in Hollywood were created by people. These people got along like a house on fire behind scenes. Check out some of these lovely behind-the-scenes stories…
5. Sansa Stark’s Actress Went In To Adopt Her Direwolf
Her role in Game Of Thrones(GOT) has been a parade of killed pets, parents, siblings, idealism, torture and rape. Thankfully, stories behind the scenes weren’t like Marquis de Sade. They were more like lyrics of Randy Newman. Incidentally, when one of the direwolves lost its job, Sophie Turner’s mom convinced HBO into letting her adopt it. Like all fairy tale endings, Sansa and Lady are living happily ever after.
In the meantime, when the cast members aren’t thirsting for each other’s blood on screen, they enjoy more of a production vacation time. Far more than Adam Sandler. And honestly speaking, they seem to be having a ball of a time. In fact, when they’re together off screen, their lives are more like a 60’s beach comedy.
4. Crash Of Muppets on Dagobah
The scenes on Dagobah weren’t easy to shoot in The Empire Strikes Back. Would you believe it if I told you that four hours were spent on shooting a mere two lined dialogue in the hot and clammy mulch! At times, masks had to be worn to keep nausea at bay which was caused by the foggy and gaseous confines of the Yoda’s backyard. In addition to this, making the Yoda puppet work in a proper fashion was no easy task either.
When Frank Oz, the operator of the Yoda, sensed that the levels of frustration were rising, he came up with a brilliant idea: The moment Hamill delivered his line “I followed my feelings,” Miss Piggy popped up from nowhere right near him and said, “Feelings? Ya wanna know about feelings? Get behind this couch and I’ll show ya feelings, ya little runt.”
As it is, Oz was behind the numerous Muppets and Sesame Street characters and he had his co-workers pay him a visit on the sets. Although it was scandalous to have Miss Piggy flirt with Luke in this manner, Hamill got into the swing of things and sang a duet of “Feelings” with her! No, the song wasn’t filmed but it surely raised the spirits of all those who were around. There were photos taken and each photo seems as though a childhood dream came true. Take a look at Yoda trying to put up with the puppets!
