Well, okay, so there is just one picture of Wolverine (aka Hugh Jackman) on an Australian beach pretending to be a fighting American WWII soldier, with the rest of the pictures filled out with extras in combat gear running to and fro. And here I thought being an extra on a movie meant camping out at the crafts table and eating two months worth of finger sandwiches. Pictures from the set (featuring the Normandy invasion) and an article on the shoot from the Lake Macquarie News below.
The film, a spin-off of the hugely successful X-Men trilogy, has been shot in locations across Australia and New Zealand, with Blacksmiths identified as the ideal location to re-create the Normandy landing of WWII for the film.
Residents defied the chilly winter mornings last Wednesday and Thursday to catch a glimpse of heart-throb Jackman or his co-stars.
“I’ve raced off night duty, haven’t gone home yet, haven’t had a shower,” said Anita O’Malley, a Blacksmiths resident.
“I just said to everyone at work that I’m coming down to see Hugh Jackman.”
Hey, I wouldn’t shower too if I got a chance to see Hugh Jackman. He’s so dreamy.
