18The baby didn't like David Bowie

David Bowie and baby in Labyrinth

Baby Toby was a little scared of David Bowie in his costume.

In an interesting bit of trivia, Sarah's baby brother Toby was portrayed by Toby Froud. He is the son of Brian Froud, the man who designed both the worlds and the creatures of Labyrinth. As an adult, Toby didn't stick with acting. Instead, he became a puppeteer for Laika, working

on their films ParaNorman and The Boxtrolls.

That made filming a scene in which Jareth holds the infant in his lap challenging. The filmmakers played with a squeaky toy off-camera in order to distract Toby so that they could get the shot they needed.

The plan didn't work completely, though. Years later, Froud told Portland Monthly that he peed on Bowie during their big scene together.
