Titan star Sam Worthington ‘skittish’ around horses
Scenes with horse Pegasus filmed separately
AUSTRALIAN actor Sam Worthington has confessed he did not get along with his equine co-star in new 3D blockbuster Wrath Of The Titans.
The Avatar star attended the premiere of the action sequel in London along with co-stars Liam Neeson, Toby Kebbell and director Jonathan Liebesman.
Sam plays demi-god Perseus who rides flying horse Pegasus into battle to help his father Zeus (Neeson).
But Sam confessed he never met the real horse who played Pegasus and their scenes were filmed separately.
He said: “Me and equine have never got along. There’s something about ’em. They get skittish around me, I get skittish. Me and Pegasus especially don’t get along.”
The first film, Clash Of The Titans, which was directed by Louis Leterrier, took almost $500 million at the box office in 2010, despite being panned by critics.
