George MacKay Reveals His Most Dramatic Scene in '1917' Was a 'Beautiful Mistake'!

George MacKay paid a visit to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday (January 7) and dished all about his film 1917, which just won for Best Motion Picture – Drama at the 2020 Golden Globes!

The 27-year-old revealed to Jimmy that his climatic moment in the film was actually a “mistake.”

“That’s a mistake that made it in. That wasn’t meant to happen,” MacKay explained. “And again, we’d rehearsed it for weeks, and we’d rehearsed that he didn’t get knocked into, and then on the day, you know, you take some hits. But the rule is you don’t stop unless they say ‘stop.’”

Jimmy also asked MacKay if he’s comfortable being called an “unknown” and assured him that very soon, he’ll never be “unknown” again.
