Jackman accidentally stabs stuntwoman with metal claws during filmingApril 20th, 2009 - 3:37 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, Apr 20 (ANI): Aussie actor Hugh Jackman has revealed that he accidentally stabbed a stuntwoman with his metal claws during the filming of ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’.
As per Digital Spy, the incident has forced film bosses to rethink how to film the scene after Jackman, 40, hurt Rebecca Romijn’s stunt double.
“On the very first film we had real metal claws and the girl who was playing Mystique, Rebecca Romijn, her stunt double and I were doing a fight sequence in the Statue of Liberty,” the Daily Telegraph quoted Jackman as saying.
“I went to stab her in the arm, which was part of the choreography, and she’s meant to move her arm away and she forgot and the thing went right into her arm, like an inch.
“I was stunned. It was one of those things, it was so deep, there was a hole, there was no blood coming out and then like a minute later, it was like a geyser.
“I didn’t faint and I thought she was going to freak out, but she just said, ‘Yes! I have been stabbed by Wolverine!’ Typical stuntwoman,” he added. (ANI)
