The ‘Money Heist’ cast said filming one episode marked the ‘worst day’ of filming the series

One of the most significant moments in the series is when Moscow (played by Paco Tous) breaks ground in the Royal Mint money safe. To celebrate the monumental moment, the money heist crew proceeded to throw the dollar bills in the air and dance in unison.

Although the moment marked a triumph win for the gang, filming the scene was a complete nightmare. In an exclusive interview with GQ Magazine, the Money Heist cast recounted the most memorable scenes in the show’s five seasons. For instance, actor Úrsula Corberó, who played Tokyo, said filming that episode was the “worst day” on set. While talking to fellow co-star Pedro Alonso, Corberó referred to the day as very “heavy.”

“That was the worst day of filming Money Heist,” she recalled. “It was a tough day.” 

In agreement, Alonso chimed in and said that filming was “very tiring” for the cast and crew. “Do you remember they’d say ‘cut’ and we’d fall to the floor? Everyone was on the floor because we were exhausted But, I remember at that moment, we were broken down, psychologically broken down. And, if I remember correctly, we filmed in one day what should’ve been filmed over three days!”
