According to the publication, Liam’s stunt double will replace him in the scene and it will mark the end of filming.  

Screen Canberra Chief Executive Monica Penders told the ABC: ‘His stunt double, also from the United States, will have to go back to America soon [which is] why filming has to happen now.’

Last month, the film’s producer Paul Currie said Liam wasn’t able to do any sightseeing in Australia during his visit due to strict COVID-safe protocols on set.  

‘He hasn’t had time to go out to restaurants or anything like that, and we can’t let him out anyway,’ Currie told The Age.   

Liam was seen on the set of the film in November, wearing a protective face mask to limit the spread of COVID-19 as he stepped out of his trailer to meet an awaiting film crew.

The star also spent two weeks in hotel quarantine in Sydney after arriving from overseas.
