Remembering Kelly McGillis and Tom Skerritt in Top Gun

Behind The Scenes: The Danger Zone In Top Gun
A lot of time has passed since 1986’s Top Gun introduced audiences to Tom Cruise as hotshot pilot Pete Maverick Mitchell.
But before he was an action star, Cruise was just another young actor trying to make it in Hollywood. Though he landed a role as a surgeon in 1983’s Risky Business, Top Gun director Tony Scott still didn’t think Cruise would be right for his film about Navy pilots — which is why Cruise worked harder than ever to prove him wrong.
How Jeremy Roenick broke his wrist filming Top Gun
The cast of Top Gun had a reason to celebrate in 1986—the movie was one of that year’s biggest hits, earning almost $160 million on a budget of $15 million.
Behind all that, though, was an extremely rocky production. Director Tony Scott is known for his fast pace, but he pushed even that when it came to working with his actors.
According to Val Kilmer, who played Tom Iceman Kazansky in Top Gun, Scott kept pushing until he broke something: Jeremy Roenick’s wrist. Apparently filming took place during unusually cold weather in San Diego.
