Sam Worthington on the destruction of nature in Australia

James Cameron’s new blockbuster “Avatar 2 – The Way of Water” is about the danger of nature. Lead actor Sam Worthington knows the issues well.


The essentials in a nutshell

  • “Avatar” star Sam Worthington, 46, sees man’s destruction of nature in his native Australia. “I swam in the Great Barrier Reef for the first time when I was 19.

It was full of color. Recently I was back there and it was full of gray spots. It is unfortunate,” he said actor German press agency.

That Great Barrier Reef Australia’s northeast coast has a 2000 km long ecosystem of thousands of coral reefs. Due to high greenhouse gas emissions and global warming, it is considered very dangerous.

In “Avatar” sequel “The Way of Water”, director James “Jim” Cameron (68) also deals with the destruction of oceans and their creatures. “There is a deep connection with Jim Water. He dived to the bottom of the Titanic and the Mariana Trench,” Worthington said. “It certainly reflects what we as humans are doing with the environment.”

The 46-year-old stars as ex-soldier Jack Sully, who is now one of Pandora’s blue inhabitants, in the sci-fi adventure currently playing in cinemas.
