We see movies and we feel that actors are living the best of life. They get to visit exotic locations and meet thousands of new people on their journey of a single movie. They even get to learn a lot in this course of preparing for the role of a movie. Above all, they get paid for all these perks that they are enjoying.
While all this looks glittery and easy to the public out there, we fail to understand that even a single scene of five minutes might take them hours and hours of rehearsal and retakes. They might have to go through hours of sitting just for the application of makeup for a particular role that is very demanding.
When the above-mentioned details on actors' struggle might still seem fine, accidents on the movie sets that unfortunately take place may succeed in gathering your attention. Let's talk about the most infamous of them.
With popular movies like The Sixth Sense, Pulp Fiction and a few TV Series under his belt, Bruce Willis, the great actor, producer and singer had to face a horrific moment in his career. In Die Hard, he had a scene in the movie where he had to shoot with a real gun from below a table. The sound of the gunshot made his left ear two third deaf forever.
Actress Isla Fisher had a scene in the starting of this movie where she had to be locked inside a water jar. She was tied with a chain and the chain got tangled with her dress leaving her inside water for three minutes!
There was a flood scene to be shot for which the makers used 15000 tons of water to create real-time flood scene. Three people lost their lives with one losing his leg and several others were left injured.
Oh, this detail saddens. The actor in the movie had to wear a heavy silver makeup which led to lung cancer in him.
Daniel Radcliffe's stunt double David Holmes got paralysed for life when he was thrown into a wall for a flying scene.
The most tragic incident took place in this movie while filming a shot where Branden lee had to get shot by blanks. Unfortunately, one of the rounds had a real bullet which shot Branden dead.
Sylvester Stallone is as hard as a moving train. He proved it when he suggested that he and Dolph Lundgren must 'actually' fight for a couple of minutes so as to keep it real. Dolph hit him a punch so hard that Sylvester was in a hospital for a week!
