** A lot of segments with Jim Henson and Frank Oz (particularly as Ernie and Bert) are loosely scripted and are largely the two actors playing off each other. One segment ends with the painting in the duo's apartment falling off the wall, but it fits so well as a punchline that the camera keeps rolling (and Bert, not missing a beat, screams with surprise).

** Another example is Misha Collins' first appearance as Castiel. The staring and ignoring Dean's personal space was not scripted, so that Jensen Ackles was genuinely surprised.
** A third example is during filming of the season three finale "No Rest for the Wicked." The pain of Dean being strung up by chains in hell was real for Jensen Ackles. To film the scene, Jensen Ackles was lifted 13 feet in the air by wires and a waist harness. Unfortunately, the waist harness slipped, causing its buckle to continuously dig into his hip throughout the scene's three or four takes. The actor, who "had tears rolling down [his] face" as he was lowered down, deemed it the most physical pain he has endured for a single shot.

* In the ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' episode "Act of Contrition", when [[spoiler:Starbuck tells Commander Adama she's responsible for the death of his son, Zak]], Edward James Olmos scared actress Katee Sackhoff into thinking he was actually going to hit her, which is why she puts her hands over her head as she walks out of his cabin.

* During the pilot of ''{{Series/Firefly}}'', Mal and Jayne throw a body out the ship's airlock and rush back inside as the door closes with a fraction of an inch to spare. This isn't just feigned: Nathan Fillion and Adam Baldwin had no idea that Creator/JossWhedon started closing the doors the moment they went out, to simulate how fast these characters had to act in their escape from the world.
* In ''Series/TwentyFour'', Kiefer Sutherland changed the line of the famous "Jack whispering to Nina" scene from Day 2 from its scripted one to a declaration of love for Sarah Clarke in order to get a shocked reaction from her.

Actor [=LeVar=] Burton had a similar problem—the bolts used to keep the VISOR prop secured firmly against his temples were so tight that, twenty minutes into a day of shooting, he would start getting headaches.

His inability to remember his lines and the extra time and effort required to get them right would make him flustered, exhausted and annoyed with himself, which made him play the character with a sense of InferioritySuperiorityComplex, weary-old-man pathos and pent-up frustration. Purves said he found it fascinating.

** "The Deadly Assassin":

to:

** "The "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS14E3TheDeadlyAssassin The Deadly Assassin":Assassin]]":



*** The infamously [[FamilyUnfriendlyViolence brutal]] cliffhanger in "The Deadly Assassin" in which the Fourth Doctor is held underwater by someone attempting to drown him ended up being a bit more horrifying than anticipated thanks to the genuine terror in Tom Baker's eyes, as he cannot swim and has a terrible phobia of bodies of water. The director praised his intense performance, but both of them expressed a lot of worry that it was too frightening for the show - concern shared by deranged MediaWatchdog Mary Whitehouse. The ongoing and messy media furore created by how legitimately upsetting the scene is to watch was a significant factor in the show getting {{ReTool}}ed into a LighterAndSofter format later on, with the Doctor's character being altered from someone who did experience occasional terror and pain, into a TricksterArchetype version of TheAce (bordering on BoringInvincibleHero) who didn't react to situations with as much emotional depth. (Tom Baker's water-phobia had previously affected his performance negatively in "The Android Invasion" which called for a ReedSnorkel sequence in a lake, followed by a comical scene of him emerging with his hair soaked down, spitting out water. He's doing his best to make it look funny but from the look in his eyes you can tell he's inwardly bricking it.)
** In "Logopolis", after the Fifth Doctor sits up after having regenerated from the Fourth, he interpreted the tone of the director telling him to do it as an indication that he'd done something wrong, and so broke character briefly. Fortunately, this works really well, because he looks at the camera with a look of nervous, surprised confusion which perfectly sums up how one would feel upon turning into an entirely different person after dying doing some reckless stunt.
** Self-enforced method acting in ''Castrovalva'': In the last scene, the script called for Adric to look "pallid" as a result of his mistreatment by the Master. Matthew Waterhouse accidentally achieved this by over-indulging in Campari the night before, so that he was severely hungover for filming. At one point, he was actually being sick behind a tree off-camera.
** Happened to Peter Davison all over his final story ("The Caves of Androzani"), so much so that he joked in the commentary that he thought that they were trying to ''actually'' kill him off. The Doctor's reaction to getting backhanded by Sharaz Jek is completely genuine; the actor playing Sharaz Jek couldn't see well out of his mask, missed his mark and couldn't see Davison because of the restrictions of the mask and ''actually'' backhanded him. The part where the Doctor throws himself away from the explosion in the sand is because the sfx guy set off the explosion too soon and shot sand into Davison's eyes.
** In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "School Reunion", Sarah Jane and Rose laughing at the Doctor is actually because Creator/DavidTennant [[FaceDoodling scribbled on his own face]] and didn't tell Billie Piper or Elisabeth Sladen.
** In "Partners in Crime" Donna's mime scene was written in the script with only the words/phrases Donna was trying to convey, forcing Catherine Tate to make up the gestures on the spot.
** In "Silence In The Library", new character River Song is introduced. Creator/DavidTennant's confusion during his scenes with her is absolutely genuine, because Creator/StevenMoffat refused to tell anyone where he was going with the character.
** In "The Time of Angels" [[CrazyAwesome Matt Smith really bit Karen Gillan's hand]] during every take just so he could get a proper reaction.

* In the fifth episode of ''Series/WolfHall'', Thomas Cromwell has to get through a MobstacleCourse in a tent to reach Henry VIII, who may be dead. The actors playing the crowd were supposed to make way for Mark Rylance to get through, but they were so caught up in the yelling and milling around that they were actually blocking him from Damian Lewis. The bits where he's grabbing them and shoving him out of his way are genuine.

*** At one point, Spandrell has to read aloud a disturbing letter that the Doctor has written for him. In rehearsals, he used a note written in English and thus had not bothered to learn the lines. When it came time to shoot the scene, the director and set designer switched it for a note written in Gallifreyan without telling the actor. The second Spandrell opens the note, he goes visibly pale and sweat springs from his forehead, and stumbles over his words as he struggles to remember them - the appropriate shocked reaction.

* ''TheBradyBunch'': In the episode "Bobby's Hero," where Bobby took up outlaw Jesse James as a role model, the episode ends with a dream sequence where Jesse James shows up and shoots Bobby's entire family (even ''Alice''!) to death (in an extremely silly-looking way, of course). To counteract the silly action, Lloyd Schwartz took actor Mike Lookinland alone to a closed set and began to describe to him how the scene would look in graphic, horrid detail, using Lookinland's real-life family as an example. The looks of terror you see in Bobby's eyes are from Schwartz screaming at him about how his real-life parents and siblings (even his ''pets''!) were screaming in pain, suffering, bleeding, and dying. Schwartz, in his memoir about the series, says he and his father, Sherwood, were proud of how the episode came off as a non-preachy "anti-gun" episode.

* Early in his television career, Creator/EdwardJamesOlmos would ad-lib and insist on playing a scene more naturalistic ally--which TV actors '''hate''', because it takes control away from them in a scene. This outraged his co-stars, but the tension on set meant that he got his desired result anyway. Mind you, Olmos did this in his very ''first'' television role, before he had any clout.
