Lessons from the set


So I go to my trailer today and find my wardrobe. With the tshirt I wear in the scene was a huge bulky winter coat that was pretty ugly. I tried it on thinking that I would never wear a coat like that and wondering what wardrobe was up to. They really enjoy dressing my character, and work with me pretty directly on everything I wear. Anyway, I suck it up and come out to do the scene. Halfway through the first take, I hear a quiet laughter spreading from the area where the director and producers sit. By the time they yelled cut, pretty much everyone was laughing but me. Turns out I was wearing what’s known as a warmy coat. A coat that they give you when you’re dressed sparsly on a chilly set. Basically I looked like a huge nerd. They slowly regained control of the crew and my chuckling scene partner and we started over. Something tells me I’ll be hearing about this one for a long time…
