The Avatar: The Way of Water actress Bailey Bass recounted the nice gesture she got from Zoe Saldaa on set.
Bass portrays Reya, a member of the new Na’vi clan known as the Metkayina, which is commanded by Fear the Walking Dead’s Cliff Curtis’ Tonowari and Kate Winslet’s Ronal.
In an exclusive interview with Digital Spy, Bass disclosed the counsel she got from seasoned Na’vi actors Saldaa and Sam Worthington, who advised her that their acts on set were more influential than their words.
“I believe their acts were more influential than their words. Instantaneously, they treated us like family “Bass clarified
Bass described a scene from the set in which she was made to feel like she was part of the Avatar family “I believe one of the most endearing things Zoe did was embrace our parents. Not only did she embrace us, but she also greeted them as though they were an integral member of our clan.”
Saldaa reprises her role as the Na’vi princess Neytiri, while Worthington reprises his role as the human-turned-Na’vi Jake Sully.
Jake and Neytiri have Na’vi children in the highly anticipated sequel, including Jamie Flatters’ Neteyam, who says he had to shield his eyes while Saldaa was offering hugs.
“I did indeed turn around as she did it. I shielded my eyes “As his co-star Bass verified that his mother did indeed get the hug, the celebrity confirmed that his mother did really receive the embrace.
Meanwhile, Trinity Bliss, who portrays the Na’vi sister of Flatters, Tuktirey, stated: “Unquestionably, I have received some excellent advise. Watching them work, being on set with them, and observing them do their thing, because they’re professionals, was fantastic for me. And sometimes it was the small things, such as just being able to greet them and give them a hug.”
Avatar: The Way of Water is released in cinemas on December 16.
