“Well, first of all we were both given the knife and the alethiometer,” Dafne explained. “But then, you know, we’re both very competitive people and we have a very sparring relationship.”

While they started out stealing small items from a war bunker set, things soon escalated to larger items and the two admitted to eventually stealing sleeping bags and oil cans.

“We were in this set that was like a bunker, a war bunker for James McAvoy’s set basically, and there was a bunch of war stuff,” she said. “And it started with me stealing a screw and then Amir was like ‘let me steal a bigger screw’ and then it became like water bottles, sleeping bags, oil cans, cigarette cans, anything and everything in sight.
