Happy holidays! For our final 2021 recording of Dune Talk show, we’re excited to bring you this exclusive interview, with a special guest you’ve seen on screen in Dune: Part One. Actor Richard Carter—Harkonnen Trooper #2, piloting the ornithopter during the kidnapping of Paul Atreides and Lady Jessica—takes us behind-the-scenes of filming the movie at Origo Studios in Budapest, Hungary.
The insightful discussion covers the whole process of producing this key scene; from audition in London to weeks of literally sweat-inducing acting performances inside the realistically constructed ornithopter set. Richard’s account offers a view into the extraordinary atmosphere of collaboration amongst cast and crew, as well as passion of director Denis Villeneuve—not to mention his extreme attention to detail. How was it like to act across from stars Timothée Chalamet and Rebecca Ferguson? We get into all of that, and more.
This podcast (58 minutes) is available below in both video and audio formats. Enjoy and spread the word to fellow Dune fans!
