Wrestler-turned-Hollywood actor Nathan Jones says he has performed lot more action in his debut Indan film than he did in Mad Max: Fury Road.
The 48-year-old Australian-born actor, who played Rictus Erectus, a 7-foot-tall muscular brute, in George Miller’s 2015 film, says it was a huge movie with a lot of violence and fight scenes but didn’t give him as much scope to do action sequences.
Jones is making his Bollywood debut with Remo D’Souza’s superhero film A Flying Jatt along with Tiger Shroff who plays the superhero character.
“It (Mad Max) was a big movie. It was like nine months in Namibian Desert and one day it was freezing cold and then it was really hot. People were fighting but I got to do more action in this film which was a lot more fun for me,” Nathan said.
“Wrestling helps me with my acting. They actually help each other. It teaches me a lot about my body and if you know about your body, it helps a lot.”
Talking about his A Flying Jatt co-star Tiger Shroff, Jones says, “Tiger was really good. It was a nice surprise. I am with the WWE but then he was brilliant. He is great to work with. His skills are really good.”
Nathan Jones says he was intimidated by the dancing moves of the Baaghi star and even the film’s choreographer-director, Remo.
“I have not learnt a single dance-step from Tiger and Remo on the sets because it has been intimidating for me,” the actor said. – CINEWS
