When actors make a movie, it usually means that they will spend quite a few months, if not longer, together. They will then probably need to travel together to promote the movie, so it helps if they can become friends with each other. And most of the time, somewhere in these actor groups – there’s a prankster.
Today we bring you Top List of best on-set pranks actors pulled on each other. Some of the material is used from ‘The Things’ site (link HERE). Enjoy!

While filming the scene in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban where all the children are sleeping in the Great Hall, Alan Rickman proved that you’re never too old for a fart joke. He hid a fart machine inside Daniel Radcliffe‘s sleeping bag then let it rip right in the middle of a dramatic developing shot.

Taron Egerton Put A Mannequin In Channing Tatum’s Bed
While promoting Kingsman 2, Taron Egerton revealed that he totally pulled one over on Channing Tatum when he stuck a mannequin in bed with a wig on it. To complete the look, he also included some empty wine bottles on the floor, as well as a pair of high heels. Apparently, it scared the crap out of Tatum, who thought it was a real person. Unfortunately for Egerton, Tatum is not one to be deterred and has been known for a prank or two before. In this case, he had some revenge on his co-star during his last day on set. According to Egerton: ”The day he left, he filled my trailer with I think it was about 20 sex dolls and some rather disturbingly large prosthetics. It’s on camera somewhere, someone filmed it I think. He spent some money on that. He really went to town.”
