Where would we be regarding updates about Kick-Ass if it weren't for the enthusiastic blogging by "Hit-Girl" actress, Chloe Moretz? The actress has once again updated her blog to discuss the latest bit of filming on the movie, now that the production has returned to London from Toronto.
I'm back in London town and having a blast! Where do I start? We had a great shoot in Toronto and I have been back in London for about a couple of weeks now. I had so much fun in Canada but London is the BEST!!!!!!!!!! We got a great apartment here and we're living like the local chaps (that's British talk). No really, it's great here. I havnt had a lot of time to see very much this time around since I am working so much. I had a few days to get over my jet lag then I hit it the set. We are filming at the very same studio where they shot Star Wars!!!!!! Can you believe that? It is soooooooooo cool. I went in the props area and they actually gave me a couple of really cool things. I have a coin from Pirates of the Carribean. I got to touch one of the practice razors that Johnny Depp used in Sweeny Todd. I took a picture with some cool star wars stuff and I got to hold a piece of the fake ice used in the Titanic film when the ship sank. It is so cool. They also gave me one of the fake chocolate bars from Willy Wonka.
This film is just like a dream come true for me. I am meeting so many people. I have to tell you, Mr. Nic Cage is the coolest man ever! I love him. I am learning things about acting that I didn't even think I could learn. He just takes everything that is written in the script and just gives it something really cool and really special. I mean, I just get to act off of what he does and I can't even believe it. I hope I can be like that one day. He just finds so many ways to make his character just so cool. Just wait, when you see how he is playing Big Daddy you are going to be so amazed. Everyday that I come to set I learn something new. Sometimes we just joke around in between takes then we kind of use it when we shoot.
Our director, Matthew, is so cool he lets us bring our stuff to our characters. He knows exactly how he wants the film to look and it amazes me how he can just tell us so clearly what he wants. He may be one of the best directors I have ever worked with. It is just easy. My role is the hardest one I have ever done because it is so physical and at the same time I have a lot of dramatic scenes. I shot 5 scenes the other day! That is a lot of scenes in one day but Matthew knows exactly how he wants it done so we just get in there and get it done. My stunt team that is training me are great too. The action scenes are SICK! I love it. I have to say, Hit Girl is pretty cool. I'm not at all like her but she is just full out wild! My costume just keeps getting better. Some days when I get home from set I am so tired I just fall into bed. I have a new respect for all those actors who do these action films because they are tough. It's all good though. I feel like I don't want it to end.
Right now I am supposed to wrap at the very end of November and the time is flying by. My teacher, Sissie, got here from LA last week so school is going well. I had a cool teach up in Toronto that I want to give a shout out to...Yo Andrea! Well, I gotta go to bed now. I have a day off of filming tomorrow and only have to do school but the next 5 days are straight out filming (after school). I have some cool, cool, cool action stuff in the next few weeks that will blow your mind! Just wait, it's gonna be great! Well, always remember....Y'ALL ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
