Netflix’s War Machine is one of the streaming service’s biggest projects to hit the platform. The movie, which stars Brad Pitt and Tilda Swinton, filmed in London and hired hundreds of background actors.
Recently, one of the background actors, Catherine Taylor, shared what it was like to see Brad Pitt perform in front of the camera.
"At a very rare missed line or during a pause for some technical check, the stars break the tension with a quick, funny remark. Up close, the talent and star quality of the actors shine as they consistently give a top-level performance each time the speeches are repeated. All the actors are also unfailingly polite and generous with their co-workers on set.”
Taylor continues by explaining what it was like on set. “What I really love is observing all the crew and how they collaborate to create and support the storytelling,” Taylor said.
"Most of the huge group of people on and off the set have been up since the early hours and will still be working after we have been signed off for the day. The energy and attention to detail never seems to flag. I can only put this down to a deep love of the industry, lots of coffee and great location catering.”
Ultimately, Taylor explains, “watching some of the best actors and filmmakers in the business as they weave their magic with skill and artistry; a real privilege.”
