As unsightly as it was to watch, the experience of filming the memorable scene was even more repulsive. It turns out that it is not tasty to eat fake human flesh which is actually made of rice paper and jackfruit. Well, in this case, jackfruit.
“We were taking out the rice paper, and it was all wet,” Nellis told BuzzFeed News. “We were like, ‘This is the grossest thing ever.’ It just tasted disgusting.
Nellis, usually a fan of rice paper, said the food was not bad when she and the cast tried it before filming. However, his appetites changed after they were all assigned to take a different part of Jackie’s fake body.
Courtney Eaton, who plays young Lottie, found the “rubbery” odor created by the combination of jackfruit, rice paper and artificial body odor “repulsive”.
“They should have sprayed some hamburger smell or something,” she said.
Although Eaton “gagged a couple of times,” she said that a cast member could not keep the food down. “Samantha [Hanratty] Thrown,” she said of her cast member, who plays young Misty Quigley.
