Harrison Ford, Gary Oldman, and Richard Dreyfus are power house names in the movie industry, so no wonder young Liam Hemsworth felt a bit intimidated while working with the trio on his new movie Paranoia.
The Australian actor admitted that filming the movie with the big screen legends made him nervous: “Knowing that those guys were coming aboard is pretty frightening. I’ve never worked with people like that before.”
Hemsworth, in an interview with Yahoo! Movies, describes how he was on set prior to any of them arriving and that it was like a build up for about two weeks. Like a small child that was impatient to get to their destination he would say to himself, “‘When are they gonna get here?'”
The first of the veterans to arrive was Gary Oldman. “It was about 7 a.m., and Gary’s a really soft-spoken guy in real life,” Hemsworth said. “He’s very kind and listens to what you’re saying.” So that wasn’t too bad.
Then he had to do a scene with him and his whole persona changed. “He just came in with so much intensity and he’s yelling and spitting in my face in this scene, interrogating me, and everyone on set just went dead silent.” he recalls.
About Harrison Ford he said, “He’s just a very easy person to work with. He would come on set and start feeling around before his scenes. It’s nice to see someone like that, who’s done so many films and still cares about every single little thing in every scene. He’s very particular about things in the best way possible. And he was also very accommodating to me.”
Hemsworth also had to wear tailored suits every day of this shoot to play his role, which he said is something he is not used to doing. “I don’t generally wear suits.” he added.
The Paranoia synopsis is: “An entry-level employee at a powerful corporation finds himself occupying a corner office, but at a dangerous price: he must spy on his boss’s old mentor to secure for him a multi-billion dollar advantage.”
