Colin Farrell has revealed that although he has taken on many different roles each with its own challenges, his most recent film proved to be very challenging which wreaked havoc on his mind.
At the Thirteen Lives premiere on Thursday, the 46-year-old actor talked openly about his experience filming several scenes in water.
The movie which is based on the true story of the 2018 Tham Luang cave rescue, in which a coach and his squad were rescued after spending about 18 days trapped below saw the actor shooting several of his scenes in water.
According to him, he got panic attacks on set while shooting a number of underwater cave scenes.
He added that he isn’t the finest swimmer and was concerned about the realistic and sizable caves that were constructed and filled with water.
The Tham Luang caverns in Thailand were the inspiration for the set, according to Colin. “They filled them full of water, and we’d go down and there was no up,” he said.
“So when you can’t and there’s actually a ceiling over your head, and there’s no air at all, it just wreaks havoc on my mind. But man, I had panic attacks underwater, that’s a new experience. A panic attack underwater is a new experience for me.”
