In a recent interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer actor Mark Wahlberg, who portrays Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell in the upcoming Lone Survivor movie, spoke briefly about his experiences during filming.
“It was a physically demanding movie,” says the actor, who shot Lone Survivor in the mountains of New Mexico, which doubled for the peaks of Sawtalo Sar and Gatigal Sar. “And we felt a lot of responsibility in making sure that we did Marcus and those guys some justice . . . .
“And Marcus was there, and a lot of the team guys, the SEALs guys that trained us, were there. So it wasn’t like we could phone it in.”
