Joining Frost and Hoskins, who played the dwarf Muir, were Ian McShane, Toby Jones, Eddie Izzard, Ray Winstone, Eddie Marsan and Stephen Graham, composing quite the distinguished group of dwarf college alumni. But things didn't get much easier for the crew once they were handed their diplomas.
"A lot of the time on the shoot we would be picked up at 3 a.m. and then we would do five hours in the makeup chair and then have to do a full 16-hour day, so that was kind of challenging," Frost said. "Having my head shaved bald was a real drag as well. Razored bald every morning. Mrs. Frost, she is not a happy bunny, but now we've wrapped and I can regrow it, and hopefully regrow my love."
