All during the shoot in the outback, Hugh was joined by a special guest—his son, Oscar. "We'd sleep out on location, have a campfire," Hugh says. "It was a time he'll never forget."
Hugh says Oscar would routinely go off playing with the other kids in the cast. They'd go hunting, do rock painting and eat bugs and plants, Hugh says. Oscar was having so much fun that he cried when it was time to leave. "He said, 'I don't want to go back to the city.' The city was Kununurra, a town of about a thousand people," Hugh says. "For him, that became the city."
Nicole's son, Connor, spent time on the Australia shoot as well. "He worked with the horses, and he learned to crack a stock whip too," she says. "He'd come home and he'd say, 'Look at my blisters!'"
