How far did Taron Egerton swim in the dorm scene in Kingman: The Secret Service? How long was the dorm and were safety divers used when making this scene?
To summarize, the entire set was being lowered into a pool. The process was controlled by a computer and meant to be done gradually, dropping several feet at a time and pausing to let the actors say their lines. Unfortunately the computer malfunctioned and the set dropped 25 feet into the pool. Vaughn says the fear on the actors' faces was real as they were essentially trapped.
