They play sisters trapped at the ocean floor after their shark diving cage snaps loose during a Mexican vacation. In reality, the actresses say they spent 95 percent of the production at the bottom of a London pool.

They were isolated from the director and crew, and say they grew to rely on each other to hone their performances.

Holt says they didn't have to try too hard to appear frightened and the long days underwater left her exhausted.
