Felicity Jones lifted the lid on the”gruelling” training sessions she had with an acrobatics specialist ahead of filming her latest movie.

The Oscar nominee, 36, has reunited with her The Theory of Everything co-star Eddie Redmayne for The Aeronauts, in which they play a pair of Victorian adventurers risking their lives in a record-breaking balloon flight.

The role required Jones to carry out stunt work while floating at 2,000 feet in a replica gas balloon and the star said that practising daring trapeze and rope work beforehand helped her get into character.

“I was really fortunate to work with an acrobat,” she told Standard Online. “She’s done a lot of aerial work, which is like what the Cirque du Soleil do.

“So I would take myself off to Hammersmith where she trains and we would do all sorts of trapeze work.

“They have these long ropes hanging from the ceiling and [the training] would be working out how to climb yourself up; you do these wraps around your feet so you can be suspended [in the air].

“My way into the character was very much, ‘If I can feel as brave as she does in the air, then hopefully I can make it work’.”

Once filming started, however, Jones had to make do without support ropes while climbing up from the balloon’s basket into its hoop in order to retain a “very naturalistic” style.

“We wanted to keep it feeling very real,” she said. “Often I’d be doing a stunt scene and I’d be getting help – you have these ropes coming off you and you can have support on those to make it easier.

“We’d do a couple of takes and it would look terrible [on film] and then Tom Harper, the director, would shout over ‘Lose the help!’

“He’d say ‘Just do it yourself,’ so in a lot of those sequences, I’m actually putting my full physical force into it, which is why it was such a gruelling experience. By the end, both Eddie and I were completely covered in bruises and bashed up.”

As much of the film takes place with the two leads trapped in the “tiny basket” of the balloon, Jones added that her friendship with Redmayne made the process “much smoother.”

“[To know] that you get on with each other, that there’s not going to be an added element of getting to know each other makes the whole process just much smoother, and I absolutely adore working with him,” she said.

Asked whether the pair would collaborate again, she replied: “Never say never! I think definitely, if the right thing came up, we’d both love to, without a doubt.”

The Aeronauts is released in cinemas on November 4 and is available in IMAX and 4DX. [Source]
