A typical shooting day for Breakout Kings is quite long, and the cast works pretty much every day for the duration of production.
Twice during shooting for season two, Malcolm Goodwin (Shea) found himself trapped in his trailer after the trailer door came off in his hand, due to overuse. Rather than attempt a show-inspired escape, Malcolm opted to call someone on set and have them bust him out.
Brooke Nevin (Julianne) almost always wears her hair up on the show. After shooting, she likes to take down her hair and have some fun with folks on-set, as they tend not to recognize her without her trademark "do."
Kevin Allejandro (Benny Cruz) is no stranger to on-screen deaths. Though his characters on other shows have been much-loved, they have a tendency to die in sudden and frequently brutal ways.
POSSIBLE SPOILERS BELOW
As Detective Nate Moretta on Southland, he was brained with a metal pipe by a gang member he thought he could trust.
As Jesus Velasquez on True Blood, Allejandro played a brujo (or, witch) who met his demise tied-up and stabbed by another witch who wanted to steal his magic for her own. Of course, death on True Blood isn't as final as it is on other shows.
