Omar Sy embarrassed about Tom Hanks

Sidse Babett Knudsen, Irrfan Khan and Omar Sy complete the distribution of ‘Inferno. After X-Men : Days of Future Past and Jurassic World, the French actor continued his international career with this feature film, a few years before making a hit worldwide with the series Lupine, in the shadow of Arsene. For this new collaboration with Hollywood stars, the actor must logically fight stress. A pressure that literally made him lose his footing on his first day of filming in Venice against Tom Hanks.

Interviewed in The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in March 2021 for the release of Lupin, Omar Sy looks back on this embarrassing anecdote with the American host. The interpreter of the WHO agent Christophe Bouchard remembers:

We were shooting a movie in Italy, Inferno by Ron Howard. It was my first day on set, I was very nervous, and I had to drag Tom Hanks in a boat, he was doing the stunt himself. I was like, ‘Keep calm, be careful, don’t hurt him’, because who wants to be the guy who hurts Tom Hanks? It is an international treasure.

So far, so good. He then adds:

I was focused, we shot the scene, it went very well, without any problem. I was really relieved. And there I took a step back, and I fell into the water. (…) It was hard, it was my first day of shooting! (…) Fortunately, Tom Hanks is really nice and very funny, he made jokes about it all day, he said: ‘Remember there is water in Venice!’
