Actress Moon Bloodgood plays the role of Anne Glass in the hit television series Falling Skies and, during the first season of the show, Moon had to shoot some scenes where Anne was pregnant. Fortunately for all involved, Moon wound up being pregnant herself, making it so much easier to shoot the scenes.
Bloodgood said in a recent interview, "So in the finale, they go: ‘Okay, you’re going to be pregnant’, and then Remi, the show runner, takes my husband aside and we are shooting in some silo and says: ‘If Moon got pregnant it would be fine’. And then a week later – boom! – pregnant. I was pregnant, but not pregnant enough because when we got into the first of the season, I was about to go into labour any minute."
She added, "On top of my belly, they had to put a fake belly prosthetic. It actually wasn’t prosthetic; it was a cotton thing you put on top of it. So I had to look more pregnant than I was, so that was sort of strange. Isn’t that funny – I show up, I’m not pregnant enough? Then I have the baby and I look too pregnant, so they were trying to shoot me so you couldn’t see the belly."
As well as starring Moon Bloodgood, Falling Skies also stars Noah Wyle, Will Patton, Sarah Carter and Connor Jessup, to name just a few. Falling Skies recently completed its third season of the show and has been renewed for a fourth season, which will premiere sometime in 2014.
