Fangoria #16 November 1981
features part 2/3 of On The Set of Swamp Thing. Part 1 can be found in Fangoria 15.
The article spotlights Adrienne Barbeau and includes insight from actor Nicholas Worth and stuntman/walking fireball Tony Cecere
Barbeau recalls her stunts and the hard work that went into her role.
As the article implies and the movie reveals, there are a number of differences between the movie and the book.
It would be fun to know which issues Barbeau read for research.
Actor, Nicholas Worth has a brief interview while waiting for the lab explosion scene to be filmed.
Stuntman, “human torch-fireball” Tony Cecere!
The dangers involved in stunt work, especially fire related stunts is intense. Below is a great photo taken from the set. I haven’t come across the particular photo before, it’s pretty great.
Cecere explains the creation of the flammable gel used by professionals and how he was involved in the production/distribution of it in the States. Pretty interesting stuff. He even helped to provide the materials to stuntmen at a fair cost.
