Luke Hemsworth took a beating during his ‘Westworld’ fight scene with Evan Rachel Wood
During an interview with Variety, the host asks Hemsworth what it was like to shoot a fight scene with Evan Rachel Wood, who plays Delores Abernathy in Westworld. In this scene, Delores fights Ashley, and she wins the fight. It made for good TV, but Hemsworth says he took a bit of a beating during that scene. Here’s how the actor described working with Wood on that fight:
It’s like any fight scene; it hurts. She’s really tough. Evan is tough; she’s kicking, she’s kicking my face. I also had surgery three or four weeks before that fight. I snapped my bicep off the bone. That’s why I’m not using my [left] arm. I’m trying not to snap that.
Fight scenes, they’re fun for a little while, and then they become quite hard work. When you’ve got someone like [Evan Rachel Wood], you just get up and you do it. You don’t complain, because she doesn’t complain. I love her, she’s just so good at what she does.
Luke Hemsworth’s role on ‘Westworld’ can get very physical

He said he’s sometimes told there are certain things he can’t do during fight scenes. “I love to do everything I can physical. There’s always a certain point where people go, ‘No, you’re not allowed to do that.’ But I’m a physical person; I spend a lot of time training so I can handle it. I can do it.”
