Much like the silent and suffering Gale Hawthorne in “The Hunger Games” trilogy, Liam Hemsworth is the strong, stoic type — especially when he gets injured on set while filming “Catching Fire,” the second film in the YA adaptation series.
“I twisted my knee,” Hemsworth tells USA Today of a recent tumble during a scene. “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.”
Don’t worry, the knee thing isn’t slowing down Hemsworth — or Gale — as he fights the tyranny of the Capitol alongside Katniss in the “Hunger Games” sequel. “There’s a bunch of action in this one,” he tells USA Today. “All of the characters have much more action than they did in the first one.”
Hey, when you’re filming a bunch of action sequences, you can’t expect all of them to go swimmingly.
“Catching Fire” is scheduled for release on Nov. 22, 2013.
