Huge paycheck. Near death experience. Was it worth it?
Being a movie star is often thought to be one of the best jobs that a person could have. Fame, fortune, and rigorous safety procedures at all times, right?
Well, um? not that last one, perhaps?
Truth is, a movie set can be a very dangerous place to be. There?s so much going on all the time, and the bigger the movie gets, the more chance there is that (at some point) something is going to go wrong. Sets and props are constantly being built and shifted, after all, as stunts are being prepped and planned. And right in the midst of all that, there are hundreds ? sometimes thousands ? of people milling about, trying to get their jobs done.
Right at the centre of the action, though, are the actors. Who knew that there was so much inherent danger in ?pretending to be someone else?? And yet, year after year, stories emerge from behind the scenes, chronicling the near-death incidents experienced by some of Hollywood?s elite during the filming of recent movies ? and 2015 is no different.
Here, then, are 6 actors who ? whilst filming motion pictures that have been released (or are set to be released) in 2015 ? almost ended up six feet under. Sometimes due to their own carelessness, of course, and at other times due to the negligence of others?
