Today, Chris Evans had a rehearsal with Julian Spencer the Stunts Coordinator. Julian has been coordinating fights and Zero G work on wires. Today they were rehearsing a scene in which Chris has to climb down into a tank of almost freezing water, immerse himself and ‘fix something’. This afternoon, the water was room temperature; when they film, the room and the tank will be refrigerated to 7°C. Chris certainly won’t have to act like he’s cold.
There were two medics on hand at the rehearsal today and will be there during filming as well. I asked Julian if it was dangerous for Chris to be in water that cold. He said, ‘Well, it takes 12 minutes before you have a heart attack. So, not that dangerous.’
