Sam Worthington has revealed that filming the sequel to the blockbuster Avatar was the 'hardest thing' he's ever had to do.

The former bricklayer, 46, says he had to learn to 'free dive' -deep water diving without scuba gear- for his role in Avatar: The Way of Water.

In the blockbuster, Sam returns as Jake Sully. He lives on the alien moon Pandora and shares four kids with Na'vi warrior Neytri (played by Zoe Saldaña).

20 famous fathers and sons

  20 famous fathers and sons Like father, like son? When the dad is famous, that may well be the case! Many a son has followed in the high-profile footsteps of his father, with some even becoming more known than their pops. Here are 20 such prolific father-son duos.

'There's a very emotional scene between me and [my son in the film],' he told News.

'But we are thirty feet underwater and running out of oxygen. You've got to forget to forget that you're deep down, that you're depleting all your oxygen, and just play this emotional scene between a father and a son.'

The Terminator star described the experience of making the film, directed by Titanic hitmaker James Cameron, as 'daunting'.

Sam told the publication that he took many months to learn how to free dive, and was taught by the world's best.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever unearthed deep colorism within Latino communities

  Black Panther: Wakanda Forever unearthed deep colorism within Latino communities Tenoch Huerta Mejía is breaking barriers as Namor. White Latinos are bristling.While most American audiences see Black Panther: Wakanda Forever as a win for Black and Latino communities — with the introduction of underwater king Namor played by Mexican actor Tenoch Huerta Mejía — the reaction in Mexico has been much bumpier. Last month, newscasters for Mexico’s ADN40 channel complained that the movie’s focus on darker-skinned Latino actors is a form of discrimination against white Latinos.

But once he had the skills to survive under water without oxygen for long periods, the hard part, he says, was 'getting rid of it', when it came time to film the emotional scenes.

Many cast members -including Kate Winslet and Sigourney Weaver- were trained to free-dive for over six minutes at at time inside a 900,000-gallon tank in Manhattan Beach, CA.
