Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt were relieved to find chemistry on the set of their new film, "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen," despite never officially meeting prior to their first rehearsal.
"We met properly for the first time in the rehearsal room and it's always been, I mean thank God I was working with someone as lovely as you. You never know when you sign up for a film, what it's going to be like and this film is so chemistry-based that I lucked out," Blunt told OnTheRedCarpet.com in a satellite interview for the film.
"We lucked out," McGregor corrected. "It was lovely. It was lovely to work with you."
Despite the intense fight scenes featured in "Haywire" actor Ewan McGregor said he only suffered one injury on set.
"The only time I got hurt was when I punched Gina Carano in the head by accident," the actor told E! News. "I had a series of three punches, but the third one...for one reason or another I connected really hard on the side of her head."
Gina Carano, a former mixed martial arts fighter, is ready to "hurt anybody" for her fellow cast members of the new movie "Haywire," which stars Michael Fassbender, Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas, Ewan McGregor, Channing Tatum and Bill Paxton.
This is the second and biggest film for Carano, a 29-year-old Texas native, who also appeared on the reboot of the show "American Gladiators. In "Haywire," a thriller directed by Steven Soderbergh, she plays Mallory Kane, a freelance covert operative who is betrayed by a person who works for her agency and seeks revenge, while assassins are sent to kill her.
