7 Famous Actors Who Almost Died on Set

A Near-Death Experience For These Seven Actors on Set

There are almost always freak accidents that happen on set, while shooting movies, some of these accidents coincide nicely with the context of the scene being shot, and is left as if it was planned. On some not-so-fortunate times, these accidents leave the actors needing emergency medical attention.

Below are some of the actors who have had these unfortunate experiences.

1. George Clooney. 

George, while doing a stunt on set for one of his movies Syriana, suffered a pretty serious injury to his back which had left him needing a complex surgery to fix.

2. Sylvester Stallone.

Mr Rocky Bilbao has had his share of run-in with onset mishaps and misfortunes, some of which he asked for.

While filming Rocky IV, Stallone was believed to have asked Dolph Lundgren punch him with all he’s got. Such a risky venture when you realize how monstrously huge and strong Lundgren was. He did as Stallone asked, punched him so hard, that is had his heart shook, literally. Stallone had to spend 8 days in intensive care as a result.

3. Jackie Chan

Mr. Stuntman himself. It would be weird not to see his name here, given the kind of daring stunts he undertakes in almost all his movies. In one of his earliest movies, Police story, Chan, while trying to leap from a rooftop, to latch onto a pole, he dislocated his pelvis and cracked his seventh vertebrae. Sounds like a lot of hurt.

4. Halle Berry
