1917's George Mackay & Dean-Charles Chapman Reveal There's A Blooper in The Movie

George Mackay and Dean-Charles Chapman step out together for the 2020 Newport Beach Film Festival UK Honours held at The Langham Hotel on Wednesday night (January 29) in London, England.

The two stars of 1917 were joined at the event by Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophie Cookson, Alice Eve, Bel Powley, Chiwetel Eliofor, Alex Wolff, Erin Doherty, Richard E. Grant, and Asa Butterfield.

In a recent interview, George and Dean-Charles revealed that there’s a blooper in one of the big scenes of their Oscar nominated film.

There’s a point in the movie where George‘s character Lance Corporal Schofield runs alongside a trench, and in the process, gets run over by his fellow soldiers who are running out – not just once, but twice.

However, it wasn’t exactly planned.

“We had rehearsed for weeks… it was such a big setup, it took five hours to reset… and then we came to do the take… it became a lot more real and I just got hit,” George told PopBuzz. “But the rule was always, unless you hear Sam (Mendes, the director) say ‘stop’, keep going, there could be something in it. It could work and that one of those mistakes that made it in.”

He added, “Also when we were doing it we thought – of course he would get knocked over. Of course that’s going to happen. I’m really pleased that’s in there, I love those little accidents.”

FYI: Bel wore a Chloe look with Pierre Hardy shoes.
