Hailee Steinfeld reveals archery training results for Hawkeye
In an interview with EW, Hailee Steinfeld said she entered the first day of training with an abundance of misplaced confidence after seeing videos of archers and other performers. “I had watched so many videos of professional actors and archers doing it, so by the time I got to the archery range for the very first time, I literally picked up the bow as if I knew what I was doing, loaded the boom and felt ready to go, ”she recalls.“ My instructor looked at me and said, ‘Okay. We have work to do. ‘”
Steinfeld, however, found herself over-prepared when she arrived in Atlanta, where the show was filming, and her co-star Jeremy Renner, who is reprising the role of Hawkeye / Clint Barton on the TV show, had to hand her over. on foot. “I wanted to [the archery] being second nature by the time I went to Atlanta to shoot, “said Steinfeld,” but the first time we met Jeremy was like, “Look, you’re gonna get there and you don’t even shoot a real arrow is all CGI. ‘ But I was still grateful to have the mechanics broken. “
Steinfeld found herself with a new hobby of the whole process, as she found herself with an itch to keep filming even after the series ended filming. “Ever since I got home from the shooting I have been trying to find where I could stack hay bales and set up a new archery target,” she said.
