** The casting of Claire Danes in ''Film/Terminator3RiseOfTheMachines'' as Katherine Brewster was a last minute decision. As a result, Danes had very little time to learn about her character. She later said this ended up being beneficial, since it added authenticity to Kate's confusion of her entire world being turned upside down without warning in the span of a few hours.

* In ''Film/DraculaDeadAndLovingIt'', when Lucy Westenra is staked after becoming a vampire, "Harker" actor Steven Weber wasn't told the massive amount of stage blood that would come from the dummy. In the movie, he's clearly [[{{Corpsing}} struggling not to laugh]] as he delivers his lines. The line "She's dead ''enough''" was reportedly ad-libbed by Weber on the spot.

* In the Creator/AdamSandler remake ''Film/MrDeeds'', there is a scene where Sandler invites John Turturro's character to hit his foot with a fireplace poker to prove he has no feeling in it. While Sandler doesn't even shrug at the first two strikes, at the third Deeds screams in pain before revealing he was joking to get a rise out of the butler. As you might have guessed, the scream wasn't in the script, Sandler and the director threw it in at the last minute to get an amusing reaction out of John Turturro. The end of the movie involves Sandler using that foot to save WinonaRyder from drowning. See the entry for ''Alien: Resurrection'' above to see why this is significant.

* For the AntiClimaxBoss scene in ''Film/TheAvengers2012'' when Loki gets [[MetronomicManMashing whipped around by the Hulk]], Creator/TomHiddleston wore a rope tied around his legs that the film crew used to yank him off his feet. He knew it was coming ahead of time, but he wasn't told exactly when it would happen.

* While shooting ''At Close Range'' in 1986, Creator/SeanPenn became aware of ChristopherWalken's intense fear of handguns. In the midst of filming the climactic confrontation scene between the two, Penn ran off-set yelling to the prop guy, "Give me the other gun!" Walken was unsure if it was loaded and became extremely nervous. Cameras rolling, Penn threatened Walken with it. That take, complete with the close-up of Walken's fear-filled eyes, ended up in the film. He admits to being quite angry with his co-star to begin with, but then realized "what a favor he had done me" and actually thanked Penn later. The two remain good friends to this day. In fact, two years later, Walken pulled the same stunt on MatthewBroderick while filming the scene in ''Biloxi Blues'' where a drunken Sgt. Toumey threatens to blow a tunnel through Eugene's head. One must wonder if Broderick carried on the tradition.

* According to a long-standing but unconfirmed Hollywood legend, during the shooting of the 1959 remake of ''[[Film/BenHur1959 Ben-Hur]]'', scriptwriter Creator/GoreVidal and director William Wyler convinced Stephen Boyd to play the role of Messala as if he and Judah were estranged lovers, without informing CharltonHeston of this--the "enforced" aspect was entirely on Heston's part. This is corroborated by Gore Vidal in the documentary film ''Film/TheCelluloidCloset.''

** Similarly, when Walter Peck gets deluged with "marshmallow" goo (actually shaving cream) in the climax, the actor William Atherton wasn't warned about what was going to happen.

** Guides at the Universal Studios tour tell the story that when shooting the shower scene in ''Film/{{Psycho}}'', Hitchcock switched off the hot water and made it ice-cold, ensuring that Janet Leigh's screams would be real. Leigh, however, has denied this.

* While filming ''Film/{{Carrie|1976}}'': Betty Buckley [[http://www.vulture.com/2014/10/horror-movie-deaths-rose-mcgowan-scream-carrie-piper-laurie-final-destination.html says]] the terrified look on her face right before she gets killed at the climax of ''Carrie'' is real, since they hadn't been able to test the falling backboard to make sure it would stop where it was supposed to before hitting her and no one knew for certain whether it would work.
