Liam Hemsworth seems to be getting a bit of an extra workout in The Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire.
According to an interview with USA Today, there’s been quite a few thrills and spills – with some scrapes along the way.
“I twisted my knee,” Hemsworth says. “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.”
In fact, Hemsworth reports that his character, Gale, sidelined from the action in the first Hunger Games, really gets into the swing of things in Catching Fire.
“There’s a bunch of action in this one,” he vows. “All of the characters have much more action than they did in the first one.”
Liam also reports that Josh Hutcherson has been getting buff for a chunkier Peeta in Catching Fire, while Liam had to make sure his character, Gale looked about the same as in The Hunger Games – which meant losing some weight.
“It’s The Hunger Games,” he says. “My character needs to look hungry. A little bit.”
