“We wanted to do it in the perfect light in the morning so around 19 to 20 times. Because it’s Lana Wachowski and it’s ‘The Matrix’ and you need natural light and you want to do it real. I mean, there’s wires. Carrie-Ann and I grabbed hands and leapt off the building. It was awesome. Can you imagine just leaping off a building with wires?”

“To prepare for something like that, Carrie-Ann speaks a lot about preparing mentally for it, I was doing that too. By the time you get there, my heart rate was a little raised, but after the first time, you can’t think of the fear. You have to block that, or nor block it, but deal with it, absorb it, and just be there, and do.”

Keanu Reeves’s film, The Matrix Resurrections will be released on 22nd December in theatres and HBO Max.
