Sweeney and Gering are the parents of small children and both actors have had close calls with them.

Gering’s occurred shortly after the birth of son Jensen, 11 months. “At about 2:30 in the morning, the second night he was in the hospital, we thought everything was great.” recalls Gering. “But he had a fever and they came in and they said, “We’re going to take him to the intensive care unit and we might have to do a spinal tap.” It was out of nowhere. When I found out that this story was about meningitis, I thought, “Whoa, okay, I’ve sort of been there. I understand that.”

Sweeney adds: “I had a minor incident with Ben (4) where he had to go to the emergency room the weekend we were filming these scenes”, she reveals. “He had fallen and scraped his head and I remember thinking, “He’s going to be fine.” I totally believed it. He turned out to be okay, but what if he hadn’t? I realized it’s one of those moments as a parent that you tell yourself that, but that doesn’t mean its true.”

man how scary for both of them
