The actress Jessica Chastainwho interpreted Vuk in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, revealed in a recent interview a prank she played with James McAvoy during the filming of the film.
In an interview with the TV show The Kelly Clarkson Show, Chastain commented more on the behind-the-scenes of filming the superhero movie, and revealed a hilarious prank she played with McAvoy.
“We were filming X-Men and [McAvoy é] Professor X, and he’s in a wheelchair — hanging by wires — and at some point he’s being lifted,” explained Chastain. “He did the scene. And it all worked out, and I had planned it with the director. The director said, ‘Final shot. Please do it again.’ So they lift him up, and he’s acting like he’s being lifted by this magic… and suddenly, the “Macarena” starts playing. And the guys who were holding the wires were making him dance the Macarena…. There’s no way to get over it. I think it was the best.”
