Liam Hemsworth has a new interview with USA Today talking about his injuries on the set of the Hunger Games sequel, the highly anticipated ‘Catching Fire.’
Hemsworth talks about the increased tempo of the action, saying "There's a bunch of action in this one. All of the characters have much more action than they did in the first one." He also adds that has led to more injuries, including twisting his knee. "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."
Hemsworth has been pretty much steadily booked since shooting the Hunger Games last year, especially after the Hunger Games broke records and shot him to the top of the Young Hollywood A-list. He talks about working at such a fast pace and shooting all of his films back to back, saying, "I spent an entire night running through this alley splashing through alley water and all this gross stuff. A concrete alleyway and I'm in suit shoes," says Hemsworth. "I was so unlucky too. I turned up on set and on the first take I got the worst stomach cramps. And I had them the entire night. It's not that easy. I haven't had a break in about a year," says Hemsworth. I've kind of shot one film to the other. And have had to prepare for each while shooting another. It's been a tremendous workload. But I feel so lucky to be where I am. I'm so thankful."
