Krypton Radio Video Of the Day!


We’ve always loved the behind the scenes footage from our favorite shows, and this time from the BBC we get to watch a timelapse video of Dan Starkey getting into character as the infamous Sontaran warrior Strax, from Doctor Who! If you’ve ever wondered how long it takes to put on special effects creature makeup, it varies greatly depending on the complexity of the creature, but does tend to take a while.

In this case, despite all of the pre-made appliances, it takes up to two hours to fully apply and set into place the potato head and face mask to Dan.

Imagine how Brent Spiner must have felt going through something similar with his Star Trek Data makeup, and on an almost daily basis!
