For his role as Corey Gage in the 2020 film Spy Intervention, Drew Van Acker upped his physical training to get stronger for the part. He even changed his diet plan in order to get the results needed for the role. “I had a pretty strict diet, keeping the cardio up with a lot of uphill running and training outdoors,” said the actor.
“Corey is to model this classic spy archetype. It’s whole male fantasy of this impenetrable character, both physically and emotionally.” Normally, the actor really does stick to an active lifestyle to maintain his physique. He works out, runs a lot, swims, plays sports, and engages in other outdoor activities.
