It seems that filming The Impossible was not as demanding as the title suggests.
Actors Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts enjoyed taking breaks from shooting at a beach bar in Thailand.
In order to deal with the gruelling storyline of portraying a family of tsunami victims in the 2004 disaster, the actors decided to make the most of their downtime.
Ewan said: "We were able to enjoy ourselves outside of the film - we had to really because it's quite a bleak subject matter."
"We were all in Thailand together and so on the evenings and weekends as a crew and cast we would hang out - we found this little beach bar called Memories we liked to hang out at."
Even with some respite, Ewan still found the scenes difficult to deal with.
He said: "We were walking a fine line in terms of making a film about the tsunami but always making a film about this family's story.
"We felt that was the way to be respectful. And that's what attracted me to the script, I felt it was a very honest and true piece of writing."
