When I went on location to shoot the scene, we spoke with Matt Ryan (Constantine) ‘This is so exciting. Wouldn’t it be even more exciting if we could succeed to keep it secret for the fans, until they discover it all on the screen ?‘” he told AND. A lie for a good cause
But if Tom Ellis has fun on the shoot (see below), he also said that to keep this appearance a secret was not obvious and required a lot of imagination and lies. When asked about his denials of that time in the face of rumors, he said : “
I was genuinely present in the city for the birthday of a friend. I’ve just been very vague on the whole truth.“
Then, the actor added : “
