Viva Bianca wasn't able to take the part originally due to scheduling conflicts with Spartacus. However, the return of Andy Whitfield's cancer uprooted the production schedule as it was clear he was not able to continue. While in the series was in stasis, Bianca filmed this movie. See more »
In the beginning of the film, Shay stands near a train holding a coin and goes to a beggar sitting nearby to give him the coin. In the first scene, the beggar was sitting with his legs crossed above the ground, but in the next scene when Shay drops the coin in the beggar's hat, he was sitting his legs touching the ground.

Another great Australian film that showcases two fearless young actresses.
One thing Australia does extremely well is making movies, it seems as though as the years go by the films coming out of my home country just get better and better. "X" has a cracking plot, a high class callgirl and a young naive streetwalker get caught up in a cat and mouse chase across the Sydney CBD and seedy kings cross red light district after they witness a murder, the night seems to get worse and worse for them as the film progresses. The filmmakers have done a terrific job with a film that so easily could have become a cheesy underbelly style thriller, there's a lot of characterization with the two girls which is a major plus in a film like this, usually it's all just gunshots and running.
The two lead actresses are mighty impressive, I have never seen them before but I was instantly interested in them and cared about the characters which is the work of a great actor, Viva Bianca, who by the looks of her IMDb resume has done a bit of Aussie TV should have a stellar film career ahead of her, she was nice to watch and has a very commanding screen presence, the younger gal, Hanna Mangan Lawrence is also excellent, she has a great knack for making the viewer want to just jump into the movie and steer her in the right direction, these two ladies are certainly two actresses that I will be looking out for in the future.
The use of seedy kings cross locations was great, it's always cool to watch an Aussie film and recognize the places that they were filmed. I hope when "X" gets a full cinema release that the Australian public see something intriguing and go to see it because it's a film that I think a lot if people would enjoy.
A fast paced thriller set in the sexual underbelly of Sydney is just what I was in the mood for when I watched this movie at SUFF, and it didn't disappoint in the slightest. Go see it people. :) oh yeah, and the naked guy at the beginning is such a hunk. :)
