Angela’s cameo shows her playing the “Among Us” video game, but Rian explained that she’s “not a gamer.”

He added, “And so she was very patient in letting me describe the rules of Among Us, up to a point. At that point, she just said, ‘You know what? Just tell me what the lines are. I will trust you.’

Rian also managed to get Stephen Sondheim to film a cameo – before his death in November 2021 at the age of 91 – and he admitted to being smitten by both.

He said: “I allowed myself to have this awkward little moment of telling them what I’m sure everyone who meets them says. But still, it was really nice to tell them that I wouldn’t be here doing this if it wasn’t for them.

“It’s sad because as a fan I wish they were still around and making stuff. I hope they would have enjoyed the little scene and had a laugh about it.

Explaining his work with Sondheim, he added: “I told him we were trying to get Angela Lansbury.” And he said, ‘Oh, Angie, I’m friends with her. Tell him I do. She will.

It comes after lead role Kate opened up about her experience filming Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery and how the all-star cast enjoyed wild parties after being on set.

Speaking on NBC’s Today, she said: ‘We had so much fun. It was during the height of Delta (the COVID-19 strain) and we were in Belgrade, Serbia, so the producer was like “you’re not leaving this hotel”.

“Which is kind of like a nightmare in itself, but they were renting the bar upstairs and we, you know, the circus came up there and we just started drinking. And when the circus starts drinking, things get weird and we had a blast.

The blonde bombshell also opened up about her character in the movie Birdie Jay and how their name has special appeal to her personally.

She said: ‘Well, my dad calls me, my nickname has always been Birdie. Which is so funny, you know, Birdie isn’t a normal nickname, so when I saw the character, I was like “oh.”

“And then on set, it was fun because I never had that moment where people called me Birdie when it wasn’t my name, you know. I would just answer without even thinking twice.
