35 year old, Australian actor Sam Worthington has revealed that there was one key element about the filming of Man on a Ledge that had him worried and that was the fear of falling. Sam admitted that it took him a little time to get used to being out on the ledge but that in time he actually managed to feel a bit more relaxed about it.
Worthington explained, "Falling was the only thing I was afraid of. And landing. That would have been the hard bit. The longer I was out there, the more confident I got. It's weird. It's a lot higher than your brain can imagine. It doesn't seem real, almost. The adrenalin is trying to keep it all together, so it just looks like a weird painting.”
He added, “The first time I went out there was the first time we filmed. I got lucky in that I didn't burst into tears or curl up in a ball or something. It would have been a different start to the movie. You can't prepare for something like that. You can't practise."
