London, Nov 2 (IANS) Australian actor Hugh Jackman had a fearful experience while filming the movie “Australia” when he had to face a pack of charging horses.Jackman plays a livestock herder in the movie directed by Baz Luhrman. He had to look good for the horse handling scenes and had to undergo training for eight months, reports

He said: “As the dust cleared, I saw that the horses that had gone into the corral had seen their mates running off into the field, so they decided, at full gallop, to go and join them - and they were running toward me. I remember what the trainer said to me - ‘There’s no stopping them.’

“The sound guy actually gave me a copy of the recording of what I said at the time because I had a microphone on. So, if you ever hear it, you’ll hear a lot of swearing and genuine fear. He said: ‘Mate, if you ever have to be in a horror movie, this is your audition tape.’”
