Miles Teller, who played Rooster in “Top Gun Maverick,” thought he was going to die.



The filming of the flight scene in “Top Gun Maverick” was grueling.


In “Top Gun Maverick,” the sequel to the 1986 film “Top Gun,” Maverick, a trainee in the first film, takes on the role of an instructor and joins the next generation of Navy pilots. It is difficult for a sequel made decades after the first film to be as interesting or more interesting than the first. This film, however, is a rare example of a film that successfully overcomes this hurdle, and has been a worldwide success and critical acclaim.


Full of respect and love for its predecessor, the film has many connections to the previous film, and Maverick’s former partner, Goose’s son Rooster, also played a major role in the story. Even though he is Goose’s son, Rooster is already a grown man in this film, released 36 years after the previous film, and was played by Miles Teller, who is 35 years old this year.


Miles has in the past excitedly revealed his experience of flying with The Patriots, a private acrobatic squadron, undergoing three months of flight training before the start of filming, but on the other hand, of course, he also had a tough flying experience. In an interview with Ladbible, he revealed a scene in which he felt like he might die.

Of course, there were moments when I thought I might die,” he said. There was a scene where I went straight to the ground and did what is called the Max G pull-up. It’s a really tough thing for a pilot to do. It’s something they are trained to do all the time in the military, but it was the first time we had ever done that kind of maneuver, and I had to stop myself from acting. I looked at the ground and knew it wasn’t going to end well.”


A situation where the aircraft you are in is falling headlong toward the ground, no matter how much you know in your head that you are in control, it is natural to be anxious and fearful that something might happen. Moreover, in such a situation, it is difficult to continue acting if a significant amount of G is applied at the end. In fact, it would be possible to capture realistic facial expressions without acting.


Miles, however, seems to be G-tolerant and did not throw up. He says, “For me, if I had a lot of adrenaline and a little bit of healthy fear, I could keep it down. Maybe that’s my secret skill,” he commented. Incidentally, in addition to Miles, Monica Barbaro, who played Phoenix, also did not throw up once, and the three people who did not throw up during filming were Tom, Miles, and Monica.
