There is little doubt that people are worried about the production on The Batman considering that filming has already been shut down twice due to positive COVID-19 tests, one of which was for lead star Robert Pattinson. However, Jayme Lawson has just spoken up about what it was like on the set of the DC movie and claims she felt "absolutely safe" while shooting.
Lawson recently spoke to The Hollywood Reporter while promoting her new film Farewell Amor and she compared the working environment of the two projects.
"What's interesting is we didn't get much done before Covid hit," Lawson said of The Batman. "And so, from when I was there, the feeling on that set was far from sterile, in my experience. So it's not going to be the same kind of intimacy that you get on Farewell Amor."
Lawson continued by stating that the "nature of the story, what the storyline requires, and the nature in which everything is conducted" also meant that "there was still a sense of familiarity on that set." The actress stated that "it's just hard to have that kind of intimacy on a set right now, and you can feel everybody wanting to" due to the COVID situation.
But was it safe to go back to work? Lawson shared how their producer made sure everything was safe for the cast and crew once they resumed filming for The Batman.
"I remember talking with Dylan Clark over the summer; I'd ask him questions and he'd keep me up to date with the protocols. So they've been very forthcoming and open about making sure that we feel safe and have whatever we need, at any moment. So I feel absolutely safe being on set for that production," she said.
For now, production on The Batman is on hold as four crew members and a stunt double have tested positive for COVID-19. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
