The big question here is what is it like playing Dwayne Johnson? It seems like a tall order, but you guys are killing it.
Bradley constant: It is exciting; it’s surreal. I often forget [that I’m playing him] because it becomes normal. But my mom lives in LA and she just sent me a picture of a billboard for this season and that’s the faces of me, Adrian and Uli right next to Dwayne. And I say, “Oh, yeah, that’s a real thing.” I forgot. It is exciting.
Adrian Groulx: It is fun; it’s surreal; It’s everything Bradley said. But I feel like there’s never really any pressure when we get to work, from the crew, the cast and Dwayne himself. We’re going to have our big, long days where we have those two-page lines, but [we’re] always have fun. A lot of the people on the show live here in America, so it’s closer to home. We can have family visits. Were not [filming] Not anymore mid COVID so it’s also a lot easier to shoot the show if you bring family.
Were you impressed when you first met Dwayne? Can you tell me how that experience was?
Groulx: Absolutely. He’s such a big guy and I didn’t expect to meet him that day. Bradley and my mom knew it – they set it up. I’m here, clueless, and we walk onto the set, and I saw the back of his head, and jokingly, in my head, I was like, “Oh my god, Dwayne,” because he’s the clean and bald person there. But then I thought, “That could be someone else,” but we went through it and I was star-struck, like you said. Joseph helped me. Joseph urged me to go and talk to him and it was really nice and genuine to talk to him. He made it so easy.
