Actor Miles Teller, who plays the character Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw in “Top Gun: Maverick”, said he thought he would die on the scene.
In conversations with the website LADbible, Miles Teller talked about the adventures he faced while filming “Top Gun: Maverick”, the sequel to the 1986 classic that has been a hit with critics and also at the box office.
“I definitely had a moment where I thought I was going to die,” Teller said of filming “Top Gun: Maverick.” “There was a sequence where we were going straight to the ground, where you do something called a maximum pull. You are very close to the ground and at the last second you pull the lever up, which is really difficult for the driver,” he continued.
“It’s something they train all the time, but it was the first time we’d done a stunt like this and I stopped acting altogether. I looked at the floor and thought that this was not going to end well for me.”
However, despite the pressure and the feeling that he was going to die, Miles Teller says he is proud that he didn’t vomit during filming, unlike other castmates. “I think when there was so much adrenaline and a healthy amount of fear, I was able to hold back. I think this is a secret skill I have.”
Check out the official synopsis for “Top Gun: Maverick”: “After more than 30 years serving the Navy as one of the greatest fighter pilots, Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is still on the job, refusing to move up the ranks and stop doing what he loves most, which is flying. As he trains a group of pilots in formation for a special mission that no ‘Top Gun’ in life has ever been on, he encounters Bradley Bradshaw (Miles Teller), who is nicknamed ‘Rooster’, the son of Maverick’s late friend, Officer Nick Bradshaw (Anthony Edwards), known as ‘Goose’.”
“Top Gun: Maverick” is available in theaters.
