Actors Who Amazingly Almost Died On Set


There are very real risks when shooting movies. Actors can get hurt performing stunts, they can fall ill in the harsh surroundings in which the film is shooting, or freak accidents can cause harm, such as falling lights or other equipment. Sometimes the actors do pass away tragically, but other times, our favorite stars live to tell the tale, likely winding it into some late night anecdote while promoting a new project. Here’s a look at Actors Who Amazingly Almost Died On Set.

Michael J Fox in Back To The Future 3
Fox wanted a stunt to look real
and hanged unconscious for 30 seconds
before anyone noticed

Isla Fisher in Now You See Me
Isla was underwater for over two minutes
panicking when she realized
she might drown in a swimming costume

Sylvester Stallone
Sly and Dolph actually traded blows
and asking to be punched as hard as possible
Rocky spent a week in the hospital with a swollen heart

Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer Lawrence hacked and gagged
on thick smoke in a tunnel scene
feeling nausea and vertigo

Charlize Theron
Charlize broke her neck doing a backflilp
She spent only five days in the hospital
Returning to shoot six weeks later

Jason Statham
Like the stuntman he is
Statham dove from a truck with faulty brakes
Before being dragged sixty feet into the black sea
