Emmy Rossum has posted a new update from the sand dunes set of Dragonball (the big screen live action Dragonball-Z movie). Rossum describes the set located outside Dunas de Bilbao as “a sand dune desert.”
“I’ve been riding the motorcycle in 4-foot sand drifts since sunrise to get the shot just right. The wonderful, kind and talented Chow Yun Fat is hanging on for dear life in back. We’ve been doing about 40mph, and over bumpy sand dunes that is enough to make anyone a little queasey. Chow is so kind, so calm and a bit of a prankster (which I love!) and he hasn’t complained once. The sand is pretty deep here, and we’ve had to dig the bike out a few times when it has stalled in the drifts, but the crew and stunt guys and girls are so helpful.”
“I’m really enjoying getting to know Joon Park. I’m not allowed to spill any secrets, but our characters interact a lot in the film. If you don’t know a lot about Joon, in addition to being an actor, he has a massively successful band in Korea (he writes a lot of the music) and is also a great dancer. Not only is Joon very cute and extremely charming, he’s gracious and very down to Earth. We’ve been trading music, giving each other some of our favorite stuff â€“ he happens to love classic rock. Because everyone’s taste in music is so personal, I’ve found music a very good way to get to know someone.”
Rossum also talks about feeding the desert rabbits (yes, there are such a thing) with “lettuce, greens, and chayote” from craft service. You can read her full blog post on MySpace.
