It is not unusual for actors playing members of the military and to undertake some level of training in the interests of both authenticity and doing justice to those in uniform. We have seen it happen in the past but this time we have something bigger! Chris Hemsworth and his co-stars in 12 Strong trained with none other than the Special Force!
From physical training to strategies and even live drills…they did it all.
"Realism is extremely important, especially when you are endeavouring to tell a true story," Nicolai Fuglsig says. "Our actors needed to experience first-hand some of what being part of a Special Forces team was really all about in order to accurately re-create the strategies employed by these types of soldiers in the field."
"Having the experts teach us about the Special Forces and this particular mission was invaluable," Hemsworth adds. "And learning together - doing the weapons training, the physical training and the movement drills—also helped cement us as a unit.", adds Chris.
Jerry Bruckheimer emphasizes, "A vital part of the Special Forces is the camaraderie amongst the teams and how much they care about one another and depend on each other, and we wanted to instill that same feeling in our cast. When they did their military training, they built that same type of bond, which was wonderful to see and I think really comes through in the movie."
