After the success of the 2019 mystery knife out, Netflix bought the rights to produce a sequel. The result was Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. Like the first film, this new installment was enthusiastically received by viewers and critics alike. In one scene, an actor made a mistake immediately after being told to be careful.

Among those guests is Birdie Jay, played by Kate Hudson, a former supermodel who now makes a fortune as a fashion designer. Birdie brings along her personal assistant, Peg, played by Jessica Henwick.

During this scene, Peg drops a huge shard of glass. She immediately turns to the camera with a horrified look. The expression looks very real, and for good reason.

“One of my favorite moments was when Jess had a massive one that she had to smash and she was so excited,” said the film’s writer-director Rian Johnson. “It’s a giant glass wheel. We start rolling the camera and I say to her, ‘Okay, let’s get this just right. We only have one of these. And what I’m gonna do is I’m gonna say one, two, three.’ She drops it and then looks straight at the camera and does so [makes a shocked face]. We only started the camera to practice the thing. She broke it and then looked straight at the camera. That’s the shot that’s in the film.”
