Liam Hemsworth Battles Through Injury On The Set Of THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE
Revealing that we should expect a lot more action in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Liam Hemsworth (brother of Marvel's The Avengers' Chris) also confirms that he narrowly escaped an injury on the Atlanta set while shooting those very scenes. Read on for details!
Talking to USA Today, Liam Hemsworth has revealed that he narrowly escaped a nasty injury on the Atlanta set of Francis Lawrence's The Hunger Games: Catching Fire last week. "I twisted my knee. I try to just fight through it. There's so many people standing around waiting for you to do your thing. You feel sort of obligated not to let everyone down." According to the Australian actor, his role as 'Gale' in the highly anticipated sequel will feature a lot more action than the previous instalment. "There's a bunch of action in this one. All of the characters have much more action than they did in the first one." However, Hemsworth has still had to be careful not to bulk up TOO much. "It's The Hunger Games. My character needs to look hungry. A little bit." He joins returning cast members Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, as well as new additions Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Alan Ritchson and Jeffrey Wright. The film will be released on November 22nd, 2013.
