Quarantine is bringing out the artistic side of a lot of us with nothing better to do. That’s exactly the case for Hulu costars Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult, who talk about their new historical comedy miniseries, The Great, while sketching each other in our latest episode of Portrait Mode.

Fanning (who plays Russian empress Catherine the Great) and Hoult (who plays her lackluster husband, Peter III of Russia) put their artistic skills to the test while recalling hilarious incidents on set and reminiscing over previous projects they’ve done together.

ON ELLE NOT BEING ABLE TO CONTROL HER STOMACH GROWLS ON SET…

“The scene towards the end, I don’t know what was going on with me, but my stomach was growling so much,” Fanning divulges. “And Nick had to put his ear up to my stomach and it was just talking back. It was so loud. … I think it was the corset, I’m blaming it on the corset.”

Hoult adds, “You’re very good, though, when I forget my lines, you’re very supportive. ‘Cause sometimes I find it quite frustrating and embarrassing, and I feel like I’m not good at my job. But certainly that scene at the end—because I had to pretend to be talking to our unborn son in your stomach—and your stomach was communicating back, so it was quite nice actually. It was probably the best method acting ever.”

ON WORKING TOGETHER…
“We work in very similar ways, don’t we? So it’s quite easy for us to work together,” Hoult says of his costar.

Fanning recalls that they previously worked together on the 2014 film Young Ones, in which they again play a married couple. “Another weird, very messed-up marriage,” Fanning says. “You killed my dad in that movie.”

“I did,” Hoult concedes. “I killed [actor] Michael Shannon. He was your father, and then I kind of took over the family.”

Fanning continues, “You’re a bad husband.”
