SFX April 2009, #181, 'Bite Club' article about S3 with various people being quoted, written by Richard Edwards. At page 65, Ben Mansfield is asked four questions. Here are two:
Q. Did you do much army training for the role?
A. I went to the armoury for the day and learned how to pull the guns apart and put them back together again with my eyes shut, and I got to fire the gun that Heath Ledger fired in 'The Dark Knight'. But I wasn't sent off to an Oliver Stone-type boot camp or anything.

Q. Has playing a soldier changed the way you behave in real life?
A. I was in a shop the other day and a guy ran out with some stuff and I almost tried to intervene. Then I thought, "What are you doing? Let him go! You went to drama school and wore tights for three years!" I automatically reached for my sidearm but it wasn't there!

*nods emphatically re your 'not saving Cutter' points*
