Duncan-Brewster shared different experiences she had while filming the blockbuster and her first scene with Jason Momoa. "For me, as you say, I've done a few projects, but it was only over a couple of days or a day of filming, this was a very long period of time but I must say that the first day, day one, we were filming in the desert in a place called Wadi Rum in Jordan, and we'd done this whole drive to get there, got into costume, get in another car to get there, and you turn a corner and there are sand dunes everywhere, and it's just immense. Everything is just on a vast like proper... When you just go like, this is like being in the cinema already, so for me seeing that alone and then getting out of the car, and seeing the cast, and then one of the moments that... I had my first scene with Jason Momoa," she said.

She went on to further explain her experiences in the initial days of shooting the much-anticipated film and her reaction when she first saw Momoa while coming out of his car to the set of the film. "So I'm there getting ready, we've got these lovely little mini homes, basically, that we get ready in and we can stay cool in, and I'm outside just pottering around, Jason comes out of his car with his entourage, and he walks towards me and he's walking at me from a distance, but then he gets bigger, and then he gets bigger, and I was like, is this going to stop? Because he's tall, he's a lovely guy, he's a great guy, so I'm looking up here and going, oh, this is what they're talking about because all my friends are like, oh my gosh, Jason Momoa and you're working with all these gorgeous human beings, but that was another moment aside from, and of course, the big moment was just being there in this vast, beautiful, backdrop, but also yes, meeting Jason Momoa for my first scene was quite extraordinary too because he just doesn't stop growing somehow," she added.

Based on the 1965's novel Frank Herbert, the film is produced under the banner of Legendary Pictures in association with Villeneuve Films with a screenplay by Eric Roth, Jon Spaihts, and Villeneuve. Dune will be distributed under the media giant Warner Bros. Pictures.
