Celebrity Archers Make Bows and Arrows Hotter


Before appearing as trident-toting, smooth-talking Finnick Odair in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” Claflin shot arrows as Prince William in “Snow White and the Huntsman.”

“Hot” could describe how Peter Mayhew, the actor who played this iconic role, probably felt while wearing the furry costume often called “the walking carpet.” But with “Star Wars Episode 7” due for release in 2015, Chewie belongs on this list. He’s the only character with a Wookiee Bowcaster crossbow/laser gun, which counts for something.


Known for his roles in action and romantic movies including “Transformers” and “Safe Haven,” Duhamel gave Ellen an archery lesson and hit the bull’s-eye on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”


As Richard O’Connell in “The Mummy” movie trilogy, Fraser often carried two pistols. But Fraser is a real-life archer who told this to “RadioTimes“: “I was researching a role where there was a famous archer called William Tell and he used a cross bow. He had to get one shot that he couldn’t miss. Long story short, I picked up an English longbow and went out in the backyard, started firing at tree stumps, was horrible at it, lost a lot of expensive arrows and it kind of just started from there. Although I don’t think I have the guts to actually hunt anything and kill it. There’s bull’s-eye targets and big bags of sawdust in the backyard.”


“Outdoor Life” said: “Mathayus the Scorpion King’s bow has the power of a cannon. Bad guys don’t get pierced by The Rock’s arrows – they get blown backward and through walls. I hope he has a pretty hefty let-off on that thing.”
