Lisa, Water For Elephants extra, talks about making Rob and Christoph laugh before filming a fight scene
Lisa…what has been your most memorable moment in LA? I’m sure you pretty awestruck when you went to lunch with Clayton.
The lunch was great….I got the opportunity to make Christoph Waltz and Robert Pattinson laugh before they were about to engage in a fight scene. When I was on the set for Water For Elephants I was pretty much awestruck being in the same room as Christoph Waltz and Reese Witherspoon two Academy Award winners and actors I respect and what girl wouldn’t want to be in the same room as Robert Pattinson. So we had a moment where I introduced myself to the assistant director who continued to put me in front of the camera which lined me up to be right next to Robert Pattinson and Christoph Waltz and Christoph looks at me…it’s a fight scene and he says, “miss I’m so sorry for the despicable array of violence your about to see” as he was about to beat up Robert Pattinson and I said, “Christoph just do what you have to do” and Robert was so taken aback that someone would say something like that to him that they both start laughing
So you might have some sort of influence on the scene…
It was great just getting to speak with them and be in the same room with them. The most incredible part is watching them all work together and being in the background I’ve been able to make all kinds of connections with people and with like 200 people running around I think I still stood out which is cool.
