25 SECRETS FROM THE KIM POSSIBLE SET!
The cast reveals insider info. Plus, we compare their characters to the ones from the original cartoon!
1 The first day of filming was on the Bueno Nacho restaurant set.
2 I did Taekwondo training for over a month to prepare for my stunts.
3 There’s a scene in the film where I save a baby, but I actually saved a cat, too! That part ended up getting cut, but it was fun working with a cat.
4 There’s a pendant in my costume that lights up, projecting a hologram. This is how our characters talk to Wade. 5 We had stunt doubles that looked like me. It confused my mom! 6 While staying in Vancouver for the movie, Sean, Ciara and I went to six or seven Escape Rooms! 7 We would make ugly faces into the
8 I actually originally auditioned for the role of Kim! I got four callbacks for Kim before I officially booked Athena.
9 My favorite day of filming was our night shoot at the Vancouver Aquarium. We even got a special tour of the place!
10 I took over 75 Polaroid pictures of weekend activities, stunt training and on set during filming.
11 We filmed at the same time as Descendants 3, so we would see the cast all around the hotel. It was fun!
12 On set, Sadie and I had a go-to duet of “Call Me, Beep Me!”
13 Once, Sean, Sadie and I watched the sunrise, then went out to breakfast in matching Canada onesies after a late shoot.
14 For stunt training, I bought a long rodlike Swiffer duster to practice at home.
15 They dyed my hair slightly blonde to get me to look like Ron, but decided to stray from the character and keep my natural curls.
16 At the aquarium, we got to hang with this special dolphin, Helen, who had lost one fin. Sadie proved to be a dolphin whisperer!
17 We used cliff set wall pieces borrowed from the T.V. show A Series of Unfortunate Events.
18 Ciara and her dad are aces at pickle ball! They taught the cast how to play on weekends.
19 After every scene with Rufus, the naked mole rat, the camera would film a member of the visual effects team holding a ball that was one side shiny and one side matte to help them know how he would look in each lighting situation.
20 I’m excited I got to record an awesome revamped version of the ‘Rufus Nakedmole Rap” with Sean.
21 The set designs were really detailed! If you look behind my head in some shots, you’ll see a “suspicious activity sweep” happening.
22 The cup on Wade’s desk is his signature. I imagined it was filled with some Iqboosting drink, but it was really just water.
23 I got to meet Christy Carlson Romano, the original voice of Kim Possible, on set.
24 I would say one of the coolest things about working on this movie was the relationships the cast built.
25 My favorite day of filming was day one when I first got to see the awesome sets.
