It's standard procedure to have a cop on your set when shooting in Thailand, though you don't usually need one when doing casting – but I suppose that's what you get for doing a screen test in a BMW.

We left the scene (of the crime) with the talent's portfolio and he left with a 500 baht fine (around 15 USD) which the agency later agreed to pay. The cop performed admirably, refusing all bribes offered to him from my art director in the rear of the car and only pretending to notice my camera towards the very end of his monologue.
