In the recent videos uploaded by Netflix on their YouTube channel, Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot, and the writer-director of the film Rawson Marshall Thurber explain the iconic ballroom scene of the film shot by shot.

The ballroom is as visualized in the film– many people are dancing together in ball gowns and suits. But Gal Gadot herself explained the reality. She said, “This is the first, you know, one-on-one encounter that Hartley has with Sarah. It’s a fun one.”

Dwayne Johnson added, “When Gal and I shot this scene, no one was in the scene with us. Shooting in COVID circumstances means that we actually had to shoot the scene multiple times with and without people.”

The visual effects supervisor had set up different points on the dance floor of the ballroom, where there would be other dancers dancing along with Hartley and Sarah in the movie. All the dancers had their specific areas. As they did their dance, Gal Gadot and Dwayne Johnson became very aware of the other human beings’ spots.
