Cast Break Down Surprisingly Dangerous Snow Scene
The cast of Heartstopper has revealed some fascinating behind-the-scenes information about that sweet snow sequence, explaining that it was actually very dangerous to film.
According to an exclusive interview, Netflix series stars Joe Locke and Kit Connor, who plays Charlie Spring and Nick Nelson, revealed that they had a good time filming the iconic sequence despite the uncooperative weather.
On that day, Locke recalled, “That was the day the cast announcement came out.”
“Therefore, it was an exceptionally warm day. After two weeks of frigid weather, the temperature dipped to about 17 or 18 degrees on that particular day. ‘Great. Now it’s snowing, the weather is pleasant.’
“But the scene where we walk into the forest, the snowy bit, and we’re doing the snowball fight. I think me and Kit – we just spent the day literally just throwing snowballs at each other. It was great fun.”
Even though the actors were having a good time playing in the artificial snow and ignoring the cast revealing the news, there was a drawback.
“It was a really fun, stress-free day, really,” Connor described. “I mean, there was this shock of, obviously, the cast reveal. So we were both sorts of a little bit rocked – in a very good way, you know? But it was literally just us joking about, and throwing snowballs at each other.
“Obviously, the nature of fake snow is, if you breathe it in, you’re done for, for the rest of the day. We were shoveling each other’s face in it, and stuff like that. So we were playing it sort of close to the line.
“But, yeah, it was a very fun day, and I think it translates on screen as well, how much fun we were having.”
On top of all that, Locke told up about his feelings regarding Nick’s mental turmoil during the season finale’s heartbreaking Charlie moment, which he shared with Tori in the exclusive interview.
No one knows how he achieved it apart from our director, Euros [Lyn]. In other words, he said, Lyn “tried to make the set as comfortable and at-ease as possible” in order to “get the right things out of us without pushing us to our extremes”.
Heartstopper is based on the webcomic and graphic novel of the same name by Alice Oseman, and Oseman also scripted the adaptation, which certain people have termed “perfectly formed” and complimented its effectiveness in “teaching young queer people that they don’t need to ‘fit’ the pattern .“
Heartstopper is currently available for streaming on Netflix.
