AceShowbiz – Actress Vivica A. Fox couldn’t wait to get to work with Liam Hemsworth on new movie “Arkansas” – four years after they first collaborated.
The pair appeared onscreen together in “Independence Day” back in 2016 and, speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Vivica gushed he “just becomes more of a grown man” every time she sees him.
“I was so thrilled when I got cast. I was fortunate that I did not have to audition, I got a call from my agent and she said, ‘There is this great new film called Arkansas and it’s got Liam Hemsworth and Vince Vaughn,’ and that’s all she had to say as far as I was concerned,” she laughed.
“It was good to see him again. And work with him again. And I tell you, every time I see him he just becomes more of a grown man. He really does,” the “Empire” star added. “When we did Independence Day, he kinda had that young heartthrob thing still hanging on from The Hunger Games but baby in Arkansas, Liam Hemsworth is dark, mysterious, and dangerous.”
According to Vivica, one of the best parts of working alongside the “charming and wonderful” actor is how he never came to set with a big ego, and was a “very giving” scene partner.
“Arkansas” was originally supposed to premiere at the South By Southwest Film Festival in March 2020, but the festival was cancelled amid the coronavirus crisis. The movie, also starring John Malkovich, Michael Kenneth Williams, and Brad William Henke, is available now on DVD, Blu-ray, and digital streaming services.
