The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials is going to be epic, so of course, the process of prepping for the roles was pretty intense. TWIST caught up with Katherine McNamara – who plays Sonia – on set while she was filming the movie, and she dished on how the entire cast would hit training sessions together to maximize their workouts!
"It’s really crazy actually. It’s so different. I’ve never really done anything other than Maze Runner that had a lot of action fight sequences to them," Kat exclusively dishes. "We’ve all been working really hard, training in the gym. We all work out together, which makes it more fun. Otherwise you’re by yourself in the gym with a personal trainer, who we love our trainer. We absolutely adore him. But it’s a lot easier to do squat and squat and crunch after crunch and pull-up after pull-up when you have somebody else there to do it with you. The support is quite nice."
Even though it was tough getting in shape for the movie, Kat admits she had a blast. "The fight sequences are really fun. It’s a challenge," she shares. "Everything the guys learn to do, I have to do in heels. But it’s doable! You know how much I love heels!" That's some serious dedication.
