#George #Clooney spent quite cold filming certain scenes from #Midnight sky (2020). #Normally, the cast does not suffer physically on the set of any movie or television series, whether in #Hollywood or elsewhere. #Not only between the sets of the studios or the screens of #George #Lucas’s garage, but also in outdoor locations. #And, if someone has to suffer in uncomfortable or even dangerous sequences, the normal thing is that they leave it to the stuntmen. #Unless your name is #Tom #Cruise, of course. #Or that the film or episode in question is directed by a curmudgeonly filmmaker like #Lars von #Trier or a perfectionist freak like the late #Stanley #Kubrick.

#Much of the snowy sequences that we contemplate in #Midnight sky, for which #George #Clooney himself is responsible, were filmed in freezing #Iceland. #More specifically, in the huge #Vatnajökull glacier. #It is the third largest in the world, with about 8,000 square kilometers and up to one in thickness. #It is so colossal that it occupies ten percent of the #Icelandic area. #And it has served as the setting for other film productions, from #Die another day (#Lee #Tamahori, 2002), going through #Batman #Begins (#Christopher #Nolan, 2005), to the #Beyond the #Wall sequences in #Game of #Thrones (#David #Benioff and DB #Weiss, 2011-2019).

#And, if those who determine the creative details of a work opt for the most realistic possible, maybe it’s time to bundle up. #But, in the case of #Midnight sky, the same director is the interpreter who had to face the low #Icelandic temperatures the most. The five #Ether astronauts got rid of it. #But not little #Caoilinn #Springall, who plays #Iris. #Like #George #Clooney to the uneasy #Dr. #Augustine #Lofthouse, whose icy beard is not due to makeup. #Because he and his team must have sunk to minus twenty-eight degrees #October on the #Vatnajökull glacier. #It was the only month they could film in snow without the simple worry of freezing.
