“We spent a bit of time sort of collaborating through the rehearsal process with other people before it was initially established that he was going to be playing the role,” Dacre dished to EW about working with Bryan Cranston on the upcoming film.
He added, “So we had a bit of contact with these other actors, and suddenly he came into the mix, and we were all like, ‘Oh my God, it’s Bryan Cranston.’”

“Just overall, the whole experience,” Becky shared with EW about her excitement. “There’s so many people in costume and so many die-hard fans, and I’m more excited to meet the Power Rangers fanatics and learning more about what I’m doing. I was a fan growing up, but it’s still, like, a whole new world to be able to share this new insight with the new and old Power Rangers fans. ”
She added, “[My castmates and I] have our little Power Rangers WhatsApp group chat, because we’re all in different parts of the world. You’ve got Ludi [Lin, who plays the Black Ranger] in China, you’ve got Dacre [Montgomery, who plays the Red Ranger] in Australia, and Naomi [Scott, who plays the Pink Ranger] in the U.K. RJ [Cyler, who plays the Blue Ranger] and I are the only ones who live in L.A., so he came by to visit me in the studio. We’re all really looking forward to going. From what I hear, it’s like going to a whole other world.”
“When we did our blocking, our run through, Elizabeth and I really wanted to make it fun, to make this scene as real as possible,” she shared. “Actually, I got to run through the wall a couple of times. I got thrown up against it and I got to break it myself. My stunt double of course was there, talking me through it, but I was really, really excited.”
Becky added, “It was a bit intimidating for me because, you know, it’s Elizabeth! I look up to her a lot as an actress, so getting to work one on one with her is really cool. I learned a lot, and there were moments when I had to hit her, and I was like, “Oh my God, I hope I don’t actually hit her!” She really let me be hands on in a lot of the fighting, so it was cool.”
