I was on set for a film that starred a television actress who was trying to break into movies. We were filming on location in a small town in an impoverished country. One day, the actress asks for coffee, so the production assistant gets it from the caterer and brings it to her. The actress looks at her like, ‘What the fuck is this?’ She then asks if she can have coffee from a café instead. Again, we are filming in an area where there is nothing like that! I was thinking, You won’t be able to get an espresso anywhere around here. The P.A. returns from whatever café she found and has coffee, but it’s in one of those red plastic cups. The actress again says, ‘What the fuck is this?’ and throws it on the ground. She then starts screaming, ‘I need someone to go to a café. Is there not a Starbucks around here?’ I couldn’t believe what an idiot she was.”
This tidbit was shared by an extra on the set. What do you do when someone asks you to get them something that simply isn’t available at the filming location? Perhaps the producers needed to buy the assistants some magic wands. Goodness! Any guesses? There’s no reveal for this one!
