Did you know that Bird Box actors were actually blind? Okay, by blind, we mean they were actually blindfolded and they could not see anything for half of the filming time. Interestingly, directors and actors call this brilliant acting as method approach. It simply means Sandra Bullock (who played the character of Malorie Hayes) and Trevante Rhodes (Tom) did not have to play bind because they were in fact 'blind' on the set. Yet, what's more fascinating to know is how did Susanne Bier direct the actors? How did she even point Sandra in the right direction?
Well, before going to the deets, props to the camera crew who painstakingly dodged the actors whenever the cast would lose track and about to hit those expensive cameras! Anyway, director Susanne Bier, who is also known to have directed the thriller film The Night Manager, admittedly expressed that directing blind actors was no walk in the park. They didn't have marks on their set. As a result, real-life horror of hitting the cameras and getting wound actually happened. The trick? Little did people know that Bier has had proper training with a professional blind teacher. Surely, she was able to teach the cast how to navigate using their sense of hearing and touch. But what makes this thriller and horror movie more convincing? Perhaps, it is the fact that Sandra Bullock does not like being scared in real life. As a result, she exuded an authentic feeling of being scared, making this film one of the best thrillers on Netflix. According to the streaming giant, more than 45 million accounts watched the film on its opening week. So, if you haven't seen it, you can visit websites to watch Bird Box online, it's everywhere now.
