London: Actor Hugh Jackman is worried about cutting himself on stage when he has to prepare a trout for cooking during his Broadway play "The River".

The 46-year-old star is getting ready to portray a man who brings his girlfriend to a remote rural cabin near a river to introduce her to night fishing in the play. He will have to clean, prepare and sauté a real trout on stage during his performance, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"I love the idea of doing all that, in silence and alone, except I`m on stage in front of 750 people.

"I love the power of theatre to create a moment like that - though if I cut myself and start bleeding all over the place it might not be so silent," said the actor.

Jackman is excited to be returning to the stage in Jez Butterworth`s production even though he loves films, he relishes the chance to challenge himself.
