Transformers: The Last Knight actress Laura Haddock took a moment to explain what it’s like to work with director Michael Bay on the set of the new movie.
Haddock explains that the director has a practical approach rather than relying on CGI. He even had built a second fake Stonehenge for the sole purpose of blowing it up.
“Michael’s sets are practical, so you would think that maybe 90 percent of this film is done on green screen, and it’s really not,” Haddock tells EW. “He loves an explosion. He absolutely loves them, so if he can use them safely, he will. Often you’re running through what feels like a genuine … battlefield. Something that kind of builds your adrenaline. You’re absolutely experience what it feels like to have an explosion go off just behind you. And you’re just running, running for your life.”
“I mean the man took a whole crew and cast and unit to Stonehenge and then by the time he had made it down the road, built another Stonehenge just so he could blow it up,” Haddock says.
