“When I got the role, they asked me about my martial arts background and experience, which of course I overdid it because I really wanted the job,” he said. “I’ve done some work as a stuntman on-again, off-again, but if we’re being honest, I think I’m more of a dancer than a martial artist.
“Almost since I was thrown I started working with coaches and learning how to move. I had really bad flexibility… Most of that initial process was just bending my body and trying to tear that leg off.”
Atlas has not yet received a release date on Netflix.
