And the costume department did an amazing thing for her! They made a green screen book bag, perfectly designed not to show up against the green screen so she could bring books with her when hanging twenty or thirty feet in the air between takes!

“I would have to drop it between takes thirty-feet in the air suspended on wires during these large setups and somebody would rush in and throw my book up at me,” she said. “I would feel so bad someone was going out of their way to do it so I was like, ‘no, it’s OK’ and they could tell I was going crazy—so wardrobe built me a book bag,” Heard said.
“I could sling it over me and then I would just like bring it around and pull out my book,” she said.

The book bag secures her books and is entrusted to co-star Momoa, who admits to pranking Heard during their downtime.
“He adopted this method of ripping out the pages of my book so I would pay attention to him,” she said. “It would drive me crazy because I’d have thirty pages left and it would be gone.”
