SIDE DISHES: The Cast and Crew dish about their experiences on the set of Chasing Taste.
We were told you had quite a "hair-raising" moment during the shoot...
I don't know know about "raising" but... This was the first time I was the key makeup artist and hair stylist, which made the concept of continuity all the more terrifying, especially when it came to hair. I don't really do hair, actually, I'm afraid of hair. I didn't cut my hair until I was 28! My fears were made manifest when I had to cut Kirk's (Chase) hair. I confess, the first trim, mid-shoot, went fairly well, having had a little practice on my husband who shares a similar pelt; but that gave me a false sense of security for the second trim, toward the end of the shoot. Armed with dull scissors and inordinate confidence, I attacked Kirk's head a little too enthusiastically and took an unsightly chunk right out of the front- I would have preferred to have lopped off a finger!-
His or yours?
I removed my hand with horror as it revealed the disaster, the death knell to the continuity it was my task to maintain. I freaked out, soaked with tears and self loathing, while Kirk calmly assured me it was not that bad.
I finally shut up, but I still felt like a hack - pun intended-
In conclusion, Kirk is a very good liar, an even better friend, and I don't do hair.
Which scene is it?
You'll just have to watch...
