* While filming ''Franchise/StarWars Episode V: Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'', Creator/MarkHamill was only told Darth Vader was Luke's father a few minutes before the scene was filmed. David Prowse, who was playing the physical half of the Darth Vader part, wasn't told at all. In order to make sure that no one on the crew would leak the surprise, Prowse was given the line, "No, Obi-Wan killed your father!" This pissed him off once he saw the actual film, as he believed that his body language would've been entirely different if he knew what the actual line was (which could constitute an example of [[TropesAreTools Tropes Are Not Good]]).

** In ''Film/{{Titanic 1997}}'' the water was much colder than any of the actors expected it to be, causing genuine reactions.

* ''CharlieChan'' actor Warner Oland was an alcoholic; his director. "Lucky" Humberton, at times encouraged his drinking, because he found the actor's slightly slurry speech better conveyed the sense of one struggling with a foreign language, as well as mentally groping toward the solution of a crime.

* ''RosemarysBaby'' contains a scene where a dazed Rosemary (Creator/MiaFarrow) has a telephone call with one of her husband's former stage rivals. Director Creator/RomanPolanski did not tell Farrow that the person on the other end of the line would be Creator/TonyCurtis, so her look of confusion is real: she was struggling to remember why his voice was so familiar.

Added DiffLines:

* Par for the course in any live-action ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' movie: The heavy, tight, all-encompassing cowl itself put almost ''all'' of the Dark Knight's actors into a very Batman-like temperament while they wore it.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/BlackPanther2018'': This was [[Creator/MichaelBJordan Michael B. Jordan's]] first time playing a villain, and he was [[PlayingAgainstType very much aware of his reputation and personality as a really nice guy]]. He intentionally distanced himself from the rest of the cast to preserve the sense of unfamiliarity and hostility appropriate between his character Killmonger and the others.

* ''Film/AChristmasCarol1938'' had a scene of Scrooge telling Bob Cratchit to remove the coals from the fireplace. Cratchit's actor, Gene Lockheart, burns his hand doing so and the take of him nursing his hand is left intact.



** At the ebdm the director told the young main actor that they'd killed the kestrel he'd been filming alongside in order to get a convincing performance out of him. In actual fact, they'd got another dead bird from a sanctuary before filming.

* Fritz Lang utilized this often, though it's hard to say where this trope ends and outright abuse begins. The best-known example was while filming the cellar scene of ''Film/{{M}}''; star PeterLorre was kept working to the point of exhaustion while suffering real physical blows in order to increase his pain, fear, and desperation. The shot where he is kicked with an iron boot was filmed dozens of times in succession.
