- Kristen Bell appeared on NBC’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers” and discussed filming “Veronica Mars” in San Diego, California when she was younger.
- The actress explained that the cast was “unsupervised” for three years as they shot the show, and someone would often pull the same, unsanitary prank in the high school bathroom set – which Bell considered to be her character’s office.
- “In the bathroom throughout the three years, someone would constantly poo poo in the fake toilet and we would come to work like every couple months and there would be just a dump in my office,” the “Good Place” star said.
- Bell explained that because there are “union rules,” they weren’t able to simply clean the mess and move on.
- Instead, they had to shut down production, call OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), and get a hazmat team to clean up the set.
The “Good Place” star appeared on NBC’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers” on Wednesday and recalled her time filming the popular series in San Diego, California with her co-stars.
“We were at a place called Stu Segall Productions and most people were from LA and we were just very unsupervised for the three years we were down there.”
She added that because no one was monitoring the cast and crew’s actions, there was a recurring and unsanitary prank that was pulled.
“Veronica’s office was always the high school bathroom -it’s where she did all her PI stuff and there were so many pranks happening because again, we were completely unsupervised in San Diego,” Bell said. “We had no executives or bosses coming to the set.”
She continued: “In the bathroom throughout the three years, someone would constantly poo poo in the fake toilet and we would come to work like every couple months and there would be just a dump in my office.”
Bell added that “working on set, there are union rules. You can’t just clean it up and go back to work.”
The actress went on to list all the steps that had to be taken, including shutting down production, calling OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), and getting a hazmat team to clean up the set.
Bell will reprise her iconic role as Veronica Mars when the show returns to Hulu in 2019 for an eight-episode fourth season.
