Nickelodeon's Legends of the Hidden Temple movie primarily takes place in a mysterious Mayan temple, so it's definitely not your everyday setting — and neither was the set. The film follows three siblings who get caught inside and must go through tricky obstacles and challenges to make it out alive. TWIST recently spoke to Colin Critchley, who plays middle child Noah, and he shared everything from the secret material the set was actually made out of to the one prop he would love to take home with him.
The actor told us, "I remember walking onto the sets for the first time and just being so overwhelmed by the sheer size of everything. The design was incredible and some rooms transformed from one thing into the other. Also, some rooms were built on top of each other, which was really cool. It was so realistic looking that you felt like you had been transported to a Mayan temple. And the most amazing thing was that everything was made out of foam. I think the viewers will be so amazed by the sets."
Based on just the trailer, we're already impressed! Out of all the props that he interacted with during filming, a few that caught his eye, but one is the ultimate.
"There are so many things that I actually tried to take, like the backpack I wore throughout the movie and the pendant of life (neither of which I got, but I haven't given up hope yet). But the ultimate thing to take from the set would be the Olmec statue. Who wouldn't want an Olmec head in their room giving them advice on a daily basis? My parents would probably make Olmec tell me to clean my room," he joked.
