‘The Wolverine’ star Rila Fukushima says Hugh Jackson is very supportive on set

While promoting the DVD, Blu-Ray release of the blockbuster The Wolverine, Rila Fukushima spoke about the production and, of course, working with Hugh Jackman.

Talking with Media Mikes in a Dec. 3 interview, Fukushima confessed she didn’t think she’d go from fashion model to actress.

“To be honest I never wanted to become an actress but when I was approached I decided to do it because I was going to be Hugh Jackman’s love interest! (laughs).”

Interviewer Mike Smith if Jackman was supportive on the set.

“Absolutely. I think he still remembers his first experiences on a big movie so he could understand how hard it was. He also taught me the “language”…I had no idea what “on camera” was or what “off camera” was. He was very, very supportive.”

The stunts and action were amazing and Fukushima explained some of her training.

“We trained for about a month before we started shooting. I learned Karate, how to throw a knife and self defense.”
