One of the most frightening aspects of USA’s hit show Colony is that the series’ occupying forces retool real-life technology for nefarious purposes. But DR1, the leading drone racing series, visited the Colony set to show that the equipment isn’t always terrifying. Series stars Josh Holloway (who plays Will Bowman) and Sarah Wayne Callies (who plays Katie Bowman) stepped out of character to race drones around the set, providing a lot of laughs in the process. Here are our five favorite moments.
Sarah Wayne Callies punches a drone’s video camera
Fed up with malicious drones hunting her character in Colony, Callies punches a microdrone with surprising accuracy.
Josh Holloway envisions a hamster-controlled drone
Is the actor dropping hints about the aliens’ identities in Colony?
Sarah becomes an obstacle course
Tasked with creating a course for the drone race, Sarah bends her limbs in awkward positions to raise hoops.
Josh re-enacts Star Wars
Considering there are still sequels and spin-offs in the cards, maybe this footage could double as Josh’s audition tape.
Sarah admits she doesn’t own the most advanced technology
Though she stars in a show set in the near-future, Sarah relaxes at home with a television “bought in ’99 and it still has a built-in VHS”. Do they sell Colony on tape?
