"This one is exciting, it's different from the other two, they've definitely taken some risks with this one," she said, adding: "It's bigger, we're in New York, you know, it's wilder for sure."

An intrigued Will quizzed the pair on what it was like filming in New York. "Fun fact," Lupita started before revealing, "we shot it here."

But it wasn't all green screens hung up on Oxford Street, oh no. The production team literally recreated New York City inside Leavesden Studios, which is in Watford, England.

Lupita explained: "We had an incredible production team that built New York. And I lived in New York for ten years and I remember walking on to set and I could not believe how much it looked like New York, everything down to the trash cans.

"It was incredible, it was beautiful."

Although the set was fake, the destruction seen in the film is very real, as Lupita revealed: "They also distressed the set as they went along.

"So it was really cool to come to the set on different days and to see how it [had been] broken down."
