More from the BERT SPOOR interview
[Asked about Nick Nicholson] I'ld better be carefull cos he loves kicking asses, hahaha.
No, he's really a good guy, from the very first day we met we were 'smoking' buddies. So was Henry of course. There aren't really anecdotes, it's all big stories with this guy! It would fill a book to write about that. And he is doing that right now on his blog. The most hilaric was I think when we wrapped early on the Firebird set. After diner we started to play Monopoly ( we played that a lot ) and alcohol was involved. I believe it was Peta Wittle who managed to find a bottle or two. Most of us were pretty 'greasy' after a few drinks, but what the hack, we had fun. Then all of a sudden Bugsy Davao our AD showed up to tell us we had a night shooting. We were "lasing" , intoxicated and hardly capably to move our hotels on the board. On the set everthing went wrong, I mean Everything. When the direct told us 'to stick our guns in any hole we could find' filming was no longer possible. We all pissed our pants.
