Many actors have been injured on set before. Some have even tragically lost their lives. It makes you wonder if the price we pay for entertainment is worth the risk. But like any other profession, there are going to be a few mishaps that occur along the way.
As time progresses and working conditions ameliorate, there are fewer casualties in the acting business. However, as our culture evolves, the demand for bigger, better and more extreme movies gets heightened, resulting in some actors or their stunt doubles putting their well-being at risk on a daily basis.
15. Isla Fisher – Now You See Me
Isla Fisher had the scare of her life while filming a stunt for 2013’s Now You See Me. What her fellow actors and cast member’s mistook for phenomenal acting turned out to be an actual cry for help. The 40-year-old actress screamed and fussed, but her efforts were muted by the water around her. Fisher’s release chain had gotten stuck in her swimming costume and she was unable to communicate her malaise to her cast members.
“I was actually drowning. Everyone thought I was acting fabulously … no one realized I was actually struggling.” The redheaded actress remained underwater for nearly three whole minutes before she was cut lose. Although Fisher had one foot in the grave she still manages to find humor in the daunting situation. “Who wants to die in a swimming costume?” Fisher jokes.
