Changes in physical appearance hardly go unnoticed for actors, especially if they're in a long-running TV show. The same happened with Nathan, who visibly went down a few sizes in the second season of 'The Rookie.'

Such a drastic alteration in lifestyle was unexpected from Fillion, whose physical state was the opposite in the first season.

Earlier, he had trouble running, jumping, and fighting due to his bad knee. Consequently, he admitted that he had to use a stunt double even for running scenes!

But a flip switched in the actor's life after the first season as he decided to take on a healthier lifestyle. As a result, he now carries a super fit body.
