Thomas Brodie-Sangster On The Heat Filming THE MAZE RUNNER

tmr-newt-character-card-2Thomas Brodie-Sangster, who plays Newt in The Maze Runner, spoke about how the weather during production affected him, and you might be surprised what he has to say.

“It was wonderful. I loved it, but some of the others were complaining because it is very hot – not so much the heat, but the humidity. If you sweat, you never dry because it literally sticks to you. But I really liked it,” said the 23-year-old.


“It puts you in the moment, because we’re supposed to be in the middle of this field and we really are in the middle of a giant field with five different types of venomous snakes and deadly spiders,” he continued.

“And when you sweat, you really sweat. It’s not make-up or someone spraying you, and I liked that. That makes it much more fun to me.”

I certainly dislike humidity, so I would’ve been one of those complaining, but it’s good to know Brodie-Sangster was able to make it work for him.

Kaya Scodelario posted a great photo of several members of The Maze Runner cast touring Louisiana shortly before the end of filming. In front of a bright pink school bus, no less!


Just when we thought we couldn’t love Thomas Brodie-Sangster anymore, that shirt happened!

Author James Dashner Visits THE MAZE RUNNER Set for his Cameo

Author (and now actor?) James Dashner (@jamesdashner tweeted a bit about his trip to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where The Maze Runner is being filmed.  It seems he dropped by on his second visit to the set to film his cameo part in the upcoming movie as well as meet the cast.

We have yet to know what his part will be in the movie, but he already stated that it wasn’t that of Rat Man, nor would it be of Chancellor Ava Paige, as someone with a bit more acting experience was signed up for that role, of which he tweeted about:


He also posted the following pictures on Instagram, which I’m very happy about. It looks and sounds like he’s just as excited about the cast as we are.

Is it just me, or is James Dashner really tall?

Some Other General Things About the Movie:

The chat officially wrapped with a Facebook video from the cast that you can watch below.

If you think that was a lot of Tweets, you won’t believe the full chat, which you can find on the Maze Runner Movie Twitter.

It was also mentioned a few times that James Dashner is headed to the set to film his cameo in the film tomorrow. Filming wraps on Friday. Producer Wyck Godfrey also made a point to say that THE MAZE RUNNER may still have some Comic Con presence besides James Dashner participating in the “What’s Behind the Door: Fiction that Thrills” panel on Sunday
