They’re all shred any other — like removing their haircut. And they were all shirtless, and it’s like, ‘Wait, since is this in here?’ And a usually reason it was in there was no smoothness between scenes in a commander where their beards are all opposite [due to how most a actors had grown from when a commander initial started sharpened to when it was re-shot a year later]. And if we demeanour closely, we could tell they were all flexing since they’re shirtless. They’re all flexing their abs.”
