Luckily, whenever Kyle Allen had a sorrowful scene coming up, he had a very supportive crew ready on the set of “The In Between.” “Often for scenes like that, everyone’s really open and easy on that day,” he told The List, which makes it a lot more comfortable acting out these very vulnerable moments on-camera.
While we all assume that an actor has to get themselves in a dark mindset in order to cry on camera, Allen’s experience on “The In Between” wasn’t like that at all. On-set, he and Joey King would often be focusing on something else entirely beforehand. “We’ll be laughing and making, like, fart jokes, and then straight into that scene,” he revealed. “Straight into that scene crying.”
There’s a reason that Allen doesn’t ever like to hone in on the emotional scenes either. “The bigger of a deal you make of it, the more difficult that scene’s going to be, because you’re going to create boundaries,” he told us, and there are none in “The In Between” — not even when it comes to life and death.
“The In Between” is available to stream Friday, February 11 exclusively on Paramount+.
