With "Thor" shooting set to begin in January, it's no surprise that the actors portraying the inhabitants of Asgard are getting in shape for their godly roles.
Jaimie Alexander, who joined the "Thor" cast in September as the "skilled Asgardian warrior" Sif, has been posting updates from the front lines of her intense training regimen. According to Alexander's Twitter feed, the "Kyle XY" actress has not only been pumping up for the role, but she's also been getting in a hefty amount of stunt training, too.
"Gearing up for a full week of stunts! I LOVE MY JOB!" she posted yesterday.
The latest update arrives after Alexander confessed on November 6 to being nervous about the upcoming "Thor" training.
"Wow.......that was pretty dang tough....but a sh*t ton of fun!!!! need to sit in an ice bath for year.....am beyond SORE!" she reported hours later.
In her role as Sif, Alexander is one of the recent additions to the "Thor" cast whose character is public knowledge, while many others remain a mystery. The "Thor" lineup currently includes Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as his evil half-brother, Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin and Natalie Portman as Jane Foster. Colm Feore and Stellan Skarsgard have also been cast, though their roles have yet to be revealed.
Most recently, "Chuck" star Zachary Levi revealed that he was in talks to play Fandral, one of the Warriors Three—leading to some speculation regarding who will fill those roles from among the current cast.
