Tyler Hoechlin Says It Was 'Painful' Learning How to Soar Around as Superman!
Tyler Hoechlin grins as he steps out for a meal at Herb Alpert’s Vibrato Grill & Jazz on Friday (September 9) in Los Angeles.
The 29-year-old Supergirl actor recently revealed some behind-the-scenes secrets about filming his flying scenes for his role as Superman using wires and a green screen.
“I wouldn’t use the word difficult,” Tyler told Entertainment Weekly. “I would use the word painful after hour seven or eight. It’s a harness that’s not necessarily the most comfortable thing to wear. It really only holds you up with two straps and they go from the back part of your waist, through the legs, up to the front part of the waist, and so it’s just not the most comfortable way to be supporting your entire body weight for that amount of time.”
Tyler added, “No falling upside down, none of that yet. I’ve spared myself embarrassment for the moment. So far I’m one for one, so we’ll see if day two brings any problems.”
“At the end of the day, you’re flying around in a Superman costume – it’s really hard to complain,” he shared.
Season two of Supergirl premieres October 10 on The CW.
FYI: Tyler is wearing John Varvatos glasses.
