But it has been an important lesson because sometimes it was less about ‘fall in that position and get on with the scene’ and more about ‘fall in that position, stay that way so your biceps are marked.’ It was a mistake and it is something that I will never do again, ”says the actor about his role as Nathan Drake in the upcoming film adaptation of Uncharted.
