Q: Luca, I believe the first scene you had them rehearse was the kiss between the two of them? Was that sort of like a test to throw them in the deep end, talking about being a sadist as you were before? To see how embarrassed they’d be for their initial scene to go that far. Armie:Can I– I’m gonna jump in before Luca answers this question and just tell you how that actual rehearsal went down.

David Tennant’s Contributions to Doctor Who Episodes Evolution of the Daleks “Walking on Theatre Chairs” Edition
Excerpts from Doctor Who Magazine issue #383: James Strong’s “Director’s Diary” for Daleks in Manhattan/Evolution of the Daleks
The Doctor faces the remaining Daleks and the imprisoned Sec in the theatre. We have to use the whole space, so I decide to put the Doctor and the company in the stalls. However, that puts them miles away from - and at least six feet lower than - the Daleks on stage. I ask David how he feels about crawling to the front and leaping on stage, but he suggests standing on the seats instead. Genius! David is now eye to eyestalk with his nemesis.
Poster’s note: This post is part of a series on some of the contributions that David made to episodes of Doctor Who, because he sometimes gets questions about ad-libs or input he may have had to episodes, but he tends to not take credit for his various additions/suggestions - so I figured I’d list some for him. I think this one is notable because it is a cool moment made even cooler by the fact that he walks across those chairs without breaking eye-contact with the Daleks (and manages to do so without falling and breaking his neck)
The highlight for Henry was working with Ben Mendelsohn, who played Tarkin’s rival in claiming credit for the Death Star, Orson Krennic.
“We played all the scenes together, we rehearsed together, we’d go outside and have a cigarette together and go over lines,” Henry said. “It was a one-on-one acting relationship as opposed to me being a stand-in.”
One of Henry’s favorite moments was when Tarkin had to be his typical authoritative self and get under the skin of Krennic.
“He gets into the mood and has got all guns blazing,” Henry said of Mendelsohn’s process. “So there was one scene where I play Tarkin particularly imperialist behind the camera to get him worked up, which I succeeded at beyond my wildest dreams. Ben thought I was looking at a monitor behind him, but in fact I was just being dismissive and he suddenly shouted, ‘Don’t look into the fucking monitor, Guy!’ But honestly, we got along famously.”
- Guy Henry (Tarkin in Rogue One) on working with Ben Mendelsohn
is there any better feeling than watching the scene where the get down bros are rehearsing for their battle and ra ra just can’t the hang of it but than diz is like “yo shao, give him a beat he can double time to” and ra freaking HITS IT OUT OF THE PARK
apageofmary: @laurenzakrin won the @greatcometbway memory prize when she sent me this video. This is basically what every rehearsal was like for our swing/dance captain family. It was pretty amazing. This is also my favorite thing I have ever done on a Broadway stage. It’ll be a hard one to beat. @blainekr MIGHT kill me, but he’s very forgiving. I ALSO TRUST HIM WITH MY LIFE and this is proof. First time we ever ran the Opera Dance together as swings. That arabesque will haunt me forever. Here I am (and Paloma is) expressing my (her) feelings about it. Other unitard wearers know it well @ani.taj@celia_mei. Thanks @pamstinkleton & @theoveralltreat, lylas! 😘@palomagarcialee @brandtmartinez@laurenzakrin for Dance Captain prize and sound effect realness. #greatcomet #tbt#sunandmoon #operadance4lyfe
celia_mei: 😂😂😂 BLAINE!
apageofmary: @celia_mei I KNOW. hear that loud noise at the end when he’s dropping me down?? That’s his KNEE.
Notes: I’m not allowed to say “Can you imagine” especially to @minhosmeanhoe because then we just talk about sexy things like this. You guys can thank her for giving me this idea and cranking through bits of the story for it.
