Did you have any kind of training before the movie began?

We worked with a Navy Seal. I had to put on quite a bit of weight for this role—and I’m still trying to lose it and it really, really sucks not being able to eat any food. We learned lots of sword fighting and hand-to-hand combat, just a really amazing experience. To start bonding when we got to North Carolina, we all were in a warehouse and did group activities like flipping tires. It was really cool.
