I had a joy playing opposite to Gal and getting a chance to fall in love with her. Patty gave me an objective which was to flirt, make her laugh. Tumble, breathe heavily like you’re doing something physical. And I said that sounds like a plan. And, you know, Gal’s my pal. So we just goofed around and had a good time. We’re pals!
We dedicated our whole day to it. The first half of the day was just the camera movements. And then we got into, it was, as you know, it’s one take, so we had to get everything right. Each attempt that we had at it. And it’s incredibly tricky because it’s not like a long tracking shot with two people speaking; it’s a long tracking shot with people punching. If one punch doesn’t land, it no longer works. It ceases to work as a scene. So I think we did it 12 times. I think three of them, we made it all the way through to the end. And one of them was the one in the show, which is kind of almost flawless. I mean, it’s very hard to find holes in that. - Charlie Cox on Cut-Man Hallway Fight
In the industry you can certainly see how they always say fame makes you more of what you already were. So if you already had certain flavors inside you, fame is just going to bring that out of you. I’d like to believe before I ever started acting I had a pretty good head on my shoulders. You certainly, as a result of being in this industry, see people change for the negative. I won’t say I haven’t had little hiccups and pockets where you leave a scenario and you say, “Whoa, that wasn’t me.” It’s up to you to recalibrate and adjust and make sure it doesn’t continue down that road.
