Squid Game Scenes That Were Dangerous To Film
The Netflix hit, South Korean created show “Squid Game” has taken the streaming service by storm as audiences are drawn in by the wild premise, intense performances, and impressive design. What makes the show even more intense is that the actors actually performed their own stunts and went through the tough mental and physical endurance to get through these scenes and bring “Squid Game” to life. If you haven’t watched the series yet - this is your spoiler alert!
The game of Tug-of-War in the show is unlike any other we’ve encountered in our lives - typically the losing team doesn’t also lose their life but all the rules are different in this world. The actors really performed on a raised platform, meaning when they lost the game on the show, they were actually terrified of falling and the nerves we see are very real. When the “Glass Stones” game came along, the actors didn’t have it any easier. The team had built a full glass platform and used plexiglass, so the actors could actually anticipate the dramatic fall. The team made sure all the performers were safe and that the proper security measures were taken as well, but that didn’t mean the experience couldn’t be totally overwhelming at times!
“Red Light, Green Light” is the first big game in the series and the one that really sets us up for what is to come in the rest of the show - aside from the whole premise being terrifying and nerve-wracking to shoot, the performers had to actually look at a freaky giant, animatronic doll.
Real fears were faced and their director bravely led the team to success, but not without serious mental and physical anguish. The result of it all is the extremely binge-worthy Squid Game - full of games none of us want to play!
