Actress Florence Pugh has shared a behind-the-scenes photo and story from the making of the Ari Aster thriller Midsommar. Pugh, who played the main character in the epic break-up movie, revealed on Instagram that the lunchtime scene where everyone gathers at a very long table was more difficult to film that you might have imagined.
Everyone had sunglasses under their butts to put on between takes because the reflective nature of the table’s mirrors were “so blinding,” Pugh said. “In fact, some people started insisting that their character would wear them in the scene because the table was so bright,” she said.
The difficulty of the shoot didn’t end there, however, as Pugh remarked that the food on the table–which was real–became rotten and smelled terrible after days of shooting. “All the food on the table was real and by day three of shooting this scene was rotten and stank like vomit,” she said.
