This part always gets me, not just because of the situation but because of Oliver. Just think - that really is his brother lying on the floor, not just another actor. He’s not just George seeing Fred, he’s Oliver seeing James. It’s not just a role he’s playing, and that’s what makes it almost unbearable to watch.
LEAVE ME ALONE TO SOB IN A CORNER.
I read somewhere they could only do this scene half a dozen times or so because it was so emotionally draining for Oliver.
AHH SHIT PEOPLE WHOEVER MADE THIS BURN IN FUCKING HELL
