Heroes underrated characters appreciation week — Day 2
↳ Stephen Canfield
My mom, who was the everyday American, was a hero.
Interviewer: Speaking about that scene for a minute, earlier you said that you allowed the bad guys to improvise a lot of their scenes while the good guys had to stay on point. When Josh (Milo) spat at Mickey (Michael) during that scene…was that part of the script or was that improvised?
Xavier Gens (Director): Totally improvised! It was not planned at all but it was so intense I had to keep it in the film. I really liked that moment…
Interviewer: So did I! That’s why I asked about it, it was really nasty.
XG: Yes it was very nasty. And if it was scripted it wouldn’t feel organic. The tension in that scene was real because it came organically from the actors themselves, not from the script. In the scene Mickey would not give Josh the combination to the lock so I told Michael that normally Mickey would fight in a situation like this but since he was tied to a chair he couldn’t physically fight, so I told him to fight with words instead. And that is what he did, he fought them with words. He pushed and pulled them with the words he chose to use and he eventually ended up spitting at Milo. Now Milo was supposed to cut Biehn’s finger off there and then but he was so furious at being spat upon, you can see the spit on his face, he was so furious that you can feel it come off of the screen. And the scene ended with a “Spit Fight” which I loved because it created such tension between the actors even after the scene ended.
AN ACTUAL MYSTERY HAS BEEN SOLVED. THANK YOU, OH WISE ONE <3
