Speaking of Margot Robbie's body makeup, it was just as difficult to remove as it was to apply — so much so that the team ended up having to get creative when cleaning her off at the end of filming.

"While we were in Panama, we were in the middle of nowhere and [removing the makeup] got a little challenging," Thorisdottir said. "We had to get all the face and body makeup off before sending [Robbie] home, and a little washcloth was not enough for her as it was for the other actors."

Their next best idea? A hose. "We ended up setting up a pop-up tent inside an abandoned building, brought in a kiddie pool, and hosed the makeup off with Hudson sprayers," she continued. "[Robbie] is such a sport and just laughed and went along with it."
