The story of the hair lady and the continuity lady
The first day they met on set they took an instant dislike to the other, they questioned their role, their attitude, their style. The effect was quite striking, causing them to go home at night and describe the other.
"Argh, I can't stand that lady."
On day four continuity lady confessed to admiring hair lady's dresses, and she smiled back and something melted.
They began to talk, they saw past the exterior, hair lady's youth and continuity's aloof.
And what seemed like apples and orange started to look really similar.
They both cackle like witches, they share the same energy and spirit.
They discover they are both half-Latvian.
Hair lady and continuity lady go home and begin to rave about the other.
"I really like that lady."
By week three these ladies are the tightest of confidants. They begin to see their similarities right through to their appearance. Their cheek bones, and pointy bits.
They compliment each other, warming each other's esteem.
They fall in love.
On the last day they do a cameo in the film together.
Their initial impression is completely reversed.
The moral to take home...
A person that effects you so deeply on first impressions, in a negative way, may actually indicate something you criticise in yourself, that you fear, and that when stuck on a film-set, you are forced to face it and discover something you would have otherwise lost.
Film-sets are catalysts for much enlightment.

Afraid Not Stu. What goes on set, stays on set!
