Sharing her unusual experience, she said, "In the first week, Johannes said, 'Bria, go look in the cave just so we can get the shot.' I look in and there's a shark head in there. I've never felt that genuinely scared. I screamed, and all the divers were laughing at me."

Brianne also shared one of her peculiar instances from the shoot, she said, "First week, I had a banana between takes. You don't have time to digest, and as soon as I got in the water I thought, 'Oh my god, I could throw this up', and I had to force myself not to. You have to drink a lot of water because you're constantly moving. We'd leave the tank for lunch, but for the most part, we'd stay in the tank the rest of the day as it's quicker. You don't want to be walking around in wet clothes and changing and stuff. And it's cold in London, so you stay warm in the tank."

Adding to this Brianne jokingly said, "We've learned to meditate underwater. I've nearly fallen asleep underwater a few times!"
