Actors and actresses are gradually returning to movie shootings amid the COVID-19 pandemic. One such actor is Ryan Reynolds, who shared his experience while being tested on the set of the film, "Red Notice." He wrote:

"Back to work on #RedNotice. The Covid Test is quick and easy. The doctor places the swab up your nose, just deep enough to tickle your childhood memories…"

narrated that after the tickle, the test is over. At the end of his caption, he joked that no matter what one told the doctor, he would not buy a person dinner first. Actress Gal Gadot, also on the cast of "Red Notice," shared

her test experience, writing: 

"Getting ready to head back to the Red Notice set, but prep looks a little different now.."

Accompanying Reynolds' post was a picture of him before the test, in a cream short-sleeved buttoned shirt, which he matched with black pants. He also wore glasses and a black face cap. 


The actor shared two more photos showing him during the test and after the completion of the process. The doctor's hands and the swab were also featured in the snaps. Reynold's wife, Blake Lively, also documented his COVID-19 testing experience.

"Red Notice" has no release date yet, though it was initially slated to premiere on November 13, 2020.

On the other hand, Gadot shared two pictures showing when the doctor placed the swab into her nose, and after the test was complete. The actress wore a white t-shirt with the inscription, "Apres Corona," a French word for "After Corona."


In her second picture, she posed pointing her right finger to the t-shirt, which also had the words, "Cannot wait for this [expletive] to end" written underneath "Apres Corona." 

The special shirts are available for preorder on Sol-Angeles. Proceeds from the shirt sales will go to the World Health Organization, WHO, to boost its fight against the deadly virus's spread.


Reynold and Gadot's return to filming "Red Notice" comes after Netflix put a halt to the production of the star-studded movie, which also has Dwayne Johnson starring in it, in March. With their return to filming, fans will be delighted that their favorites are keeping themselves safe even while working. 

"Red Notice" has no release date yet, though it was initially slated to premiere on November 13, 2020, before the spread of the novel coronavirus. 

The film, which is an action-comedy thriller, is directed by Rawson Marshall. Aside from Reynolds, Gadot, and Johnson, who portrays an Interpol agent in the movie, other cast members include Ritu Arya and Chris Diamantopoulos.
