Here’s a fun behind the scenes video featuring Philip Winchester on the exciting stunts the actors did themselves in this week’s episode:
In a quote provided by Cinemax, Philip Winchester says about the complicated train sequence:
“It was really intense, but we are all thrilled about how amazing it looks on screen. It took us 4 days total to shoot the whole train and helicopter sequence — which is short by film industry standards. Similar sequences take feature films about 4-6 weeks to shoot. We trained and prepped for each stunt because of its difficulty. First, we rehearsed the train and helicopter choreography. Since they had to run at the same speed, it was quite tricky. Next we rehearsed when the train was stationery so we get a feel of where we could climb and where we could not. We also had to test our shoes in wet and dry conditions — it rained on one of the rehearsal days and the top of the train became an ice skating rink. Then we rehearsed with the train and helicopter going 25 kilometers per hour, then at 40 kilometers per hour, then at 60. In total we prepped for 1 full day for the entire crazy thing. My best piece of advice was: ‘Don’t fall off.’ It was fun to shoot it, and really challenging.”
