Anna Hutchison keeps her body in top shape by being active in her day-to-day. For starters, some of her roles on the screen have also required her to undergo physical training, such as with Spartacus. For her role as Laeta in the said series, the actress attended three weeks of boot camp training to prepare for her character and perform some stunts on her own.
“I had horse-riding lessons. It’s been outrageous because you know when you’re a kid and you go to horse-riding lessons after school – I was never one of those ones, but my friends were so it’s felt like I got all that stuff that I semi missed out on as a little one,” said the actress. Outside of filming, she also stays active by engaging in a lot of activities. For instance, she trained for a New York marathon although she had to drop after getting injured.
