"I said about archery, ‘Any pointers?’ And he said: ‘You’re never going to be shooting a real arrow.’ I still took lessons, I fell in love with the sport. Very fun to do it the way that we do. I’m not bad at it."
Jeremy will reprise his role as Clint
Jeremy added that this will be the first time his daughter watches one of his projects, explaining: "This will be the first thing my daughter sees me do. She’s eight years old now. Now that she’s eight, it’s something for the first time she’ll see what daddy does. The ‘guy on the screen’. She was on the set and these kinds of things. It’ll be a special thing for me to share with her."
