1. Yoo In-soo and Yoon Chan-young who stars in “All Of Us Are Dead” are friends IRL

Although the duo are rivals in the show, Yoo In-soo and Yoon Chan-young are actually close friends in real life. Their friendship is especially unexpected since their characters are sworn enemies, with Yoon Gwi-nam journeying through hell and high water just to get revenge on Lee Cheong-san.

In an interview with Netflix Korea, Yoon Chan-young mentioned that he and Yoo In-soo live close to one another, and they had a heart-to-heart talk under the stars on one of their days off.

2. Millie Bobby Brown’s “Stranger Things” haircut brought her father to tears

As the story goes, Matt and Ross Duffer, the show creators, had to do a little convincing to encourage Brown to get the cut.

“Mad Max: Fury Road was about to come out, so we pulled out a magazine photograph of Charlize Theron as Furiosa and showed it to Millie,” the brothers said to Entertainment Weekly. “(We asked) ‘Charlize looks totally badass, right?’ Millie agreed; Charlize looked badass. And that was it: She agreed to buzz it all off.”

“When the day of the haircut finally arrived, Millie’s mom brought out a camcorder, while her dad ran away with tears in his eyes, unable to watch. It was a pretty dramatic scene. But also very quick,” they continued. “Within 10 minutes we had shaved it all off and a fake ‘11’ tattoo on Millie’s wrist. Millie looked at herself in the mirror, gave her best Furiosa scream — and Eleven was born.”

3. “Sex Education” star Asa Butterfield’s real-life mom is a psychologist & therapist

Fans already know Otis’ mom is a sex therapist. But what you might not know is Butterfield’s real-life mom is also a psychologist and a therapist, and he says his IRL relationship with his mom isn’t so different from his character’s.

4. “Emily In Paris” cast Lucas Bravo, Samuel Arnold, and Ashley Park  all lived together

Bravo (Gabriel), Samuel Arnold (Julien), and Ashley Park (Mindy) don’t interact much in the show but off-camera, the trio became fast friends. In an interview with Glamour, Ashley Park said she was so excited to be in Paris for the first time and got along with Lucas and Samuel so well that they all lived together. The two men moved in with Ashley for a month and a half because she had spare bedrooms. For fans, it’s fun knowing these three fabulous characters all got along so well off-screen.

5. The fictional languages in “Shadow & Bones” were created by the same person behind Dothraki in Game of Thrones

David J. Peterson developed Valyrian and Dothraki languages for Game of Thrones as well as the language in Thor: The Dark World. He also helped the showrunners of Shadow and Bone by developing the various fictional languages used in the show

“He created two languages that you’ll essentially be able to learn at some point,” said Jessie. And these languages were incorporated into even the tiniest details on set, from bottle labels to playing cards.

6. Season 1 of “Bridgerton” featured 5,000 costumes

A team of over 200 people worked on the elaborate looks for five months. Between hats, shawls and overcoats, a total of 7,500 pieces were created for 5,000 outfits. Daphne Bridgerton had 104 different looks alone!

7. To prepare for their sex scenes, the cast of “Sex Education” had a workshop with Ita O’Brien — an intimacy director.

He made them watch, then replicate, videos of different animals mating. According to the cast, they watched lions, cats, bonobos and even slugs doing the dirty.

“None of us really knew each other and it was the best ice-breaker ever,” Aimee Lou Wood (who plays Aimee Gibbs) said.

8. “Ginny & Georgia’s” creator Sarah Lampert based Season 1 of the show on her own high school experiences

Although the drama of Ginny & Georgia can sometimes seem larger than life, many of Ginny’s coming-of-age experiences were directly inspired by the writers’ own high school days. “I really did fall on my way out of ninth grade Spanish, and my tampon flew across the room and hit my crush on the forehead. I got caught shoplifting. My mom ran Sophomore Sleepover,” Lampert said, according to Netflix press notes shared with Elite Daily. “I’ve been in a very dramatic love triangle … So keeping [the show] rooted in authenticity was important.”

9. The Hyosan High School building in “All Of Us Are Dead” was a set

The Hyosan High School building was actually a four-storey, 100m-long set that the production team built from scratch.
The school was constructed with details such as a library, science lab, and a music room to make the setting more realistic.

The set was also enhanced with CGI, and had us almost completely fooled as it looked just like a real school.

10. Anya Chalotra declined a body double for her nude scene inThe Witcher

Speaking to Metro, she explained that although she had a body double, Flora, she very quickly realised she didn’t want her to act out the sex scenes for her.

She felt like she still needed to commit to Yennefer’s emotional transformation in those scenes, and convey all of her feelings with her body language, especially in the closeups. She also had to be fully nude for the body transformation ritual.

11. Several of “Bridgerton’s” iconic hairstyles were based on real-life celebrities

Daphne’s curled bangs were based on Audrey Hepburn’s memorable look from “War and Peace”. Queen Charlotte’s Afro was based on Beyoncé’s hair in “Austin Powers in Goldmember” (2002), and Lady Featherington’s updo, which Pilcher likened to a “red-headed Elizabeth Taylor.”

12. Aimee Lou Wood originally auditioned for the role of Lily in “Sex Education”

Aimee Lou Wood, who plays Aimee Gibbs on Sex Education, recalls her initial audition process for the role of Lily. She told Collider:

“I got through this audition that was for Lily. All I saw were Lily’s sides, so I didn’t see the rest of the script. I only saw Lily’s stuff and I thought she was hilarious and the show seemed amazing. And then my friend, because of her job at the time, she read the scripts and she said to me, ‘Why aren’t you going in for Aimee? I feel like there’s a character in it called Aimee and she is your part,’ and I was like, ‘Well, I’ve got an audition for Lily.’ It was after the third audition that they were like, ‘We’re sorry, it’s not gonna go your way with Lily.’ And I was like, ‘Okay, it’s fine. That’s really sad because I really loved the show and it was kind of the first thing for so long that I’ve been dead excited about,’ and then they said, ‘But, can you come in tomorrow with this new character, Aimee?’ And I remembered my friend saying it and then I got the sides through and I was just laughing so much because some of the things on that script were verbatim things that I have said in my life and I was like, ‘Oh my god, this is it.”

13. Freya Allan was originally cast in a much smaller part in “The Witcher

“We had a lot of trouble finding Ciri,” producer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich told Cosmopolitan. “She was originally written as an 11-year-old girl, and we looked and looked and looked, and then we started to think about the production restraints for shooting with a child, basically, and how much it would limit the hours on set.

“And so we started looking older and I just wasn’t finding anyone I liked. And Sophie Holland who’s our casting director said, ‘I want you to look at someone that we’ve already cast’. And we had actually cast Freya Allan as a one-episode part named Marilka. She literally … she interacted with Geralt, it was one scene and then she was done.”

Lauren  continued, “Freya will tell you that she was called back in and she was like, ‘I don’t understand. Did I lose a part? Are you calling me back in to fire me?’ And she showed up that day in like a striped t-shirt and baggy jeans, and she was a kid. And yet she had such soul. And we literally read one scene, we thanked her. I’m sure she thought that she had messed everything up. And we cast her that day.”

14. “Cobra Kai” creators originally wanted to make a movie that focused on Johnny Lawrence as an adult and the person he became after his high school bullying days, but it never panned out

Jon Hurwitz (one of the show creators) shared, “This was the early 2000s. We were talking about doing a movie, which would be called Cobra Kai and Johnny Lawrence would be the center character, and you get to see kind of what happens to a bully in their adult life. But it just never felt realistic to make. So fast forward a bunch of years later, you know, The Karate Kid remake came and went. And then here we were.”

15. Julia Garner met with Anna Sorokin in prison for her role in “Inventing Anna”

In an interview with Town & Country, Garner recalls how surprised she was when she met with Sorokin at the Albion Correctional Facility. Far from acting like a hardened criminal, the actor describes the fraudster as “actually really sweet,” “extremely charming,” and “very gentle.”

The most remarkable part of Garner’s meeting with Sorokin happens when the con artist asks the actor to demonstrate the voice and accent she will be using for the miniseries. This prompts Garner to parrot whatever Sorokin says, which must have been quite a sight to see.

16. “Squid Game” was meant to be a movie

However, the director felt constrained by the idea of it being a film, complaining how “2 hours wasn’t enough to even cover all the games.”

It also wasn’t initially called Squid Game. The original name given to the project by Director Hwang was “Squid Game, Play to Die.” When it got picked up by Netflix in 2019, it was tentatively also titled “Round Six.”

17. Lucas Bravo, who plays hot chef Gabriel in “Emily In Paris”, used to actually work as a sous-chef

The actor talked to EW about his time in a Paris kitchen: “A few years ago, I was working in this bar and one of the sous-chefs left, and I told them, “I don’t think I can learn anything more at the bar. Can I assist you?” And he accepted. So for two months, I was basically a sous-chef and I had a blast.”
