Undercover stars about impossible scene: ‘Eating ice cubes at -20’


Not only the series is back, Ferry too! In the previous part, the convicted drug lord was only seen for about 5 minutes, this season 168 minutes. “Just like a football player sitting on the couch, that’s how I felt,” laughs the Netflix star when Humberto confronts him with the fact. “But it’s nice to be missed, that’s always nice.”

In the third series, Bob and Ferry do not compete against each other, but instead join forces to take down another figure from the underworld. And the actors really liked that, they say in the talk show. “We get along so well outside the set, and that’s great fun. Especially if you have about 80 shooting days, often in difficult circumstances. Then you better have someone with whom you get along well,” says Tom .

“We just want to tell a nice story and have fun in the meantime”, adds Frank his colleague. “That works 79 out of 80 days.” That one shooting day that it didn’t work out was ‘terrible’ and ‘horrible’, according to the actors. The scene they are talking about was actually set in Istanbul in the sun at 30 degrees, but in reality it took place when it was about -20 degrees. “It was the coldest winter day in February,” said the Belgian, who then explains that in those harsh conditions they were half naked in an ice-cold van.

To prevent smoke from coming out of their mouths because of the cold, they had to suck on ice cubes because it was not yet cold enough. “And we were really handcuffed,” said Frank. “And that thing [busje red.] was driving, so if you moved something, the handcuffs would tighten up.” But the worst is yet to come: the hard work in the cold turns out to be all for nothing. “Three weeks later, the director comes to us and says: ‘It has to be done again.’ There was something about the light that wasn’t right.”

Undercover Season 3 is now available on Netflix. Will there be a fourth season? When Humberto asks the actors, they keep their lips tight and laugh sheepishly. “If it came, I wouldn’t say anything about it,” said Tom.

They do say that they are open to a sequel. And that means even more (international) fame. Because now the gentlemen can no longer just walk the streets in Belgium and the Netherlands. Tom says that he was recently recognized in Mexico and London. “I had the last time in London,” he says. “That I was approached by a real Londoner who said: ‘Are you the guy from Undercover?’ That’s very funny.”
