Liam Hemsworth Says Playing Gale In “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” Was Difficult
Liam Hemsworth opened up in a new interview about how it was difficult to play “The Hunger Games” character Gale in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.” One reason it was hard was a scene Liam had to film where Gale gets whipped – and it took days to shoot the scene.
Getting whipped—it was interesting. It was weird ’cause we had a couple hundred extras on set, and I spent awhile in makeup getting my back done with all this interesting prosthetics. I think we shot it for about three or four days. I was tied to a pole and screaming and getting whipped, and after awhile, it starts to wear on you a bit—just the yelling and exhaustion of it all. It’s an odd thing to turn up to work and get whipped for a few days. For most people.
“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” will arrive in theaters on November 22, 2013. Do you think Liam’s fiancee Miley Cyrus will attend the premiere with him – just like she did at the “Paranoia” movie premiere?
