Naomi Scott wants everyone to know it’s okay to make mistakes.
“There was one dialogue scene and then I was in scenes, but just there,” Naomi recalled. “So there was this one dialogue scene. It was this science jargon. Ridley Scott was behind this curtain and I was just, mate, I just choked.”
Instead of freaking out over the situation, Naomi said she took it as a learning opportunity.
“I think it’s so important to just talk about moments where you choke, because they really do inform your experiences and they really do force you to kind of reconcile whatever those insecurities that you have are and face them,” Naomi explained. “Anyone out there, in whatever field of work, and you think of that time that you wanted the ground to swallow you up, let me tell you, we’ve all been there. I’ve been there in front of Ridley Scott.”
Naomi was eventually able to get the dialogue out, but her scene ended up getting cut out of the movie. However, it did become a deleted scene in the extended version.
“I was just this little role. They didn’t care. Maybe if you’re the lead in something. I wouldn’t take that stuff too personally, do you know what I mean?” Naomi shared. “I laughed it off. I came back to my mother-in-law – this is the best thing – I got back home, I went to hers because we were there and she opened the door and she went, ‘You’re an extra?’ Because literally in the movie, there’s one shot of me in this cap and I’m like this. It’s like one second!”
