A miscommunication between the casting agent and Catinca Untaru led her to believe that Lee Pace was a real-life paraplegic. Director Tarsem Singh found that this brought an added level of believability to their dialogue, so he decided to keep almost the entire cast and crew under the same impression. Apparently it was hard to keep up the lie - a makeup artist walked into a room to find Pace standing and almost passed out from shock.
What movie is this? I wanna watch it!
It’s The Fall, an excellent movie!
Lee Pace: You know we had met on that first day, but I think this was about the second week of shooting and we had gotten to be pretty close. At lunch, I would wheel in to lunch and she would go get me dessert and draw little pictures for me. We had just gotten very tight.
Dan Gilroy (writer): Well, she loved you.
Lee Pace: I loved her too, she was pretty special. But they would cut holes in the curtain to get this shot and she had no idea she was being filmed. She would complain about Tarsem and everyone in other room would laugh and she’d say, ‘What are they laughing at?’ She just had no idea.
This child is perfect.

You always stop at the same part, when it’s very beautiful. Interesting.

The Fall ( 2006)
Blue Bandit: [dying] You must be strong.
Alexandria: [as herself and the Bandit’s daughter] Not the time to sleep, now. Not the time to sleep. Wake up. Wake up, its not the time to sleep now. Wake up. Don’t pretend to sleep. Wake up. Laugh-laugh. Not the time to sleep.
The Fall is an amazing movie and if you haven’t seen it go do that right now! (Apparently everyone’s already seen it and I’m the last person in the world to have watched it.)
