Pic of the Day: On the set of The Professional (1994)
An Arriflex 35 BL4 sits perched behind Natalie Portman (making her film debut) on the set of Luc Besson’s The Professional (1994).
As a little added bonus, here’s Gary Oldman discussing one of his many unhinged line readings from the movie, via a Playboy interview:
“What’s funny is that the line (where I scream “Everyone!”) was a joke and now it’s become iconic. I just did it one take to make the director, Luc Besson, laugh. The previous takes, I’d just gone, “Bring me everyone,” in a regular voice. But then I cued the sound guy to slip off his headphones, and I shouted as loud as I could. That’s the one they kept in the movie. When people approach me on the street, that’s the line they most often say. It’s either that or something from True Romance.”
