- The script
Most of the shows are initially first written and then the shooting begins. But for Money Heist, the scenario is different. The show is all scripted during the shoot and both the cast as well as the crew have absolutely no idea about what is going to happen before it sir. So they don’t even know about the next day’s script. With only a little time to rehearse the actors do their best and send mock videos on their phones to explain the camera movements simultaneously.
- The show’s name
Well logically if the title La casa de papel was translated directly to English from Spanish then the show’s name would have been The house of paper. Thus many people till today think that the show Money Heist and la casa de papel are two completely different shows. But the truth and the logic behind the title of the show being Money Heist is that the characters are in a heist where they steal money from the Royal mint. Thus the show makers and the team decided to go with this name rather than translating the Spanish show’s name.
