In the midst of work on The Last Duel, Ben Affleck decided to fly off to his son’s birthday party. The actor had time for the holiday, but he didn’t grab gifts for the boy. Then Affleck was rescued by his co-star Adam Driver. The actor knew that the birthday boy was a big Star Wars fan, so he sent him a bunch of fantasy saga souvenirs, including a postcard signed by Kylo Ren. “He opened the presents and I showed him the video that Adam recorded for him on set. The driver made me a hero in the eyes of my child. I will never forget this,” Ben said.
During the filming of Maleficent, the directors encountered an unexpected problem. All the young actors who were supposed to play the role of Aurora in their childhood cried at the sight of the intimidating costume of the actress.

Chris really said this phrase, and it not only entered the film but also became the final one in the first trailer for the tape.
Draco Malfoy became famous on the set of the first two Harry Potter films for his fondness for sweets. The actor constantly carried sweets and other snacks in the pockets of his robes.

Therefore, by the beginning of work on the Prisoner of Azkaban, the dressers sewed up the pockets of all the “students”. “There were rumors that they did it because I was smuggling food and drinks onto the set. I want to clarify this point because this is the absolute truth, ”admitted Felton.
