warhorsenews GOLD logo SMALLDon’t you wonder if actors’ memories of filming movies just get all jumbled together? All those long hours on the set, rehearsing and re-shooting and going through makeup and costuming can be exhausting.

But one thing is for sure: the actors from War Horse will never forget their co-stars in the film: the horses! In this video, Jeremy Irvine, Emily Watson, Benedict Cumberblatch and Tom Hiddleston share some fun memories of the horses they worked with during the filming of War Horse.

Their memories of high horse humor moments will no doubt improve every time they’re retold!

One key piece of information from Emily Watson is the role of the dedicated poop scooper on the set. I wonder if he or she is listed in the credits!

War Horse Stars: Children’s Books Really Do Impact Our Adult Lives–Just Ask the Cast!

This mini-video from DreamWorks takes War Horse in a new direction.

Maybe, as Grandfather so eloquently suggests in the film, we can “never look down…” but we can look back.

Many of Steven Spielberg’s cast members had personal connections to the War Horse story, either because they lost family members in World War I and grew up with that legacy, or because they read War Horse (the book) by Michael Morpurgo when they were children.

Jeremy Irvine (Albert), Tom Hiddleston (Captain Nicholls) and David Kross (Gunther) remember what books they read as children, from Sendak to Saint-Exupery to Tolkein and Fitzgerald.

(Tom Hiddleston was one very sophisticated little boy! The British actor who played Captain Nicholls read The Great Gatsby when he was very young and then went on to play Fitzgerald in Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris.)

But they all remember War Horse. And so will you.
