The popular actress shared the details alongside some candid behind-the-scenes footage.

Ada Nicodemou, who starred in Home and Away, provided some insight into the production of the dramatic car collision sequence in Monday’s season-opening episode.

The well-known actress shared a clip of how she and James Stewart had to simulate the effect of a collision when the automobile remained completely still.

In the footage, Stewart and Nicodemou are seen sitting in the car in total stillness before they abruptly start moving around.

Stewart’s head lands on the steering wheel as Stewart and Nicodemou both jerk backwards and forwards while simultaneously flailing their arms.

Nicodemou comes to rest with her head lolling back against the passenger seat.

There is a split-second moment of stillness before both actors burst into laughter.

“The funniest and weirdest thing I’ve ever had to do,” she captioned the video, adding two crying-laughing emojis.

“Looks like you’re doing the Mexican wave!” one fan joked.

“Watched it 20 times for the laugh!” wrote another.

The actress posted stunning images and video clips of the creation of the crash scene in separate posts.

I’m not sure who watched last night’s program or what you all thought. I adored it!” she exclaimed.

“Such pride in our work and the entertainment we produce.

“Our team has amazing talent!

Some #bts from the show are here.

In order to make it appear as though she had been in a vehicle accident, Nicodemou displayed photos of the makeup job that had been done.

Elsewhere she is shown being bandaged up or lying in the back of an ambulance.

“You guys did a great job it looked so real and very scary,” one fan wrote.

“It was absolutely amazing and the way the actual car was flipping around and around, and the actions of the actors were incredible,” said another.

“We were astounded by the crash scene’s quality! Well done crew, a lot of work put into that one,” chimed in a second.

Leah, played by Nicodemou, sustains severe injuries in the incident.

Such a compelling episode. You make a fantastic actress. One fan pleaded, “Don’t leave us!

“Can’t do that to us, Leah better not die!” another wrote.

One reader was more concerned about the devastation of the lovely yellow dress she was wearing in the scene than the demise of her character Leah.

“Not that beautiful Witchery dress!” the fan wrote.

Another Home and Away fan was clearly a bit traumatised by the dramatic episode.

“Would have been nice to just have a normal loving wedding,” they joked.
