Hilary Swank Reveals She Developed Claustrophobia from Her 'Away' Spacesuit

Hilary Swank is opening up about the difficult time she had while playing Emma Green on the Netflix series Away.

The two-time Oscar-winning actress revealed in a new Instagram post that she has never had a phobia in her life, but she developed claustrophobia on set because the spacesuit she had to wear.

“I have never, not once in my life, had a phobia. Until now. And I’m gonna be honest, I never understood them, I always thought ‘get over it, it’s just a spider, etc. walk away.’ Until l, of course myself, became severely claustrophobic,” Hilary wrote in her post. “To the point my entire body broke out in sweat and I was drenched within 30 seconds and my face looked like a very ripe tomato…and I almost passed out while trying on my finished spacesuit and helmet for the first time. It is not just mental, it is very physical.”

“BUT, our mental minds do control a lot, if not everything. After six months, I was not able to overcome my claustrophobia, but I was able to come to a type of meeting of the minds with it. When we calm our minds and sit with the fear, NOT try and push it away, we can sit with it in a different way, that makes it ‘doable,’” she continued.

“Playing an astronaut in AWAY made me push into the sharp edges in a way I never thought it would. This was such an important lesson for me…in so many ways,” Hilary concluded. “I hope that in sharing this you might feel less alone in whatever it is that takes over your mind and therefore body. Be patient with yourself.”

The showrunner of Away recently cleared up some confusion fans had about the final moments of the season, plus some details have been revealed for potential season two plans.

Hilary Swank‘s new Netflix series Away has become the latest hit show on the streaming service and there has been lots of confusion surrounding one of the final moments of the season finale.

The first season of the show followed five astronauts on their months-long mission to Mars and they finally reached the planet in the last few minutes of the season.

It was decided before the mission that Chinese astronaut Lu Wang (Vivian Wu) would be the first person to step foot on Mars, but viewers couldn’t figure out who actually was the first person to walk on the planet based on what was shown.

We’re able to see the first foot making its mark in the sand on Mars, but then the camera cuts to Misha (Mark Ivanir) and Lu talking to each other and it looks like he’s ventured out further than she has.
