Actor Brendan Fraser has spoken about an incident that occurred whereas filming a scene for The Mummy, the place he was choked out and almost died.
Speaking in a latest interview throughout The Kelly Clarkson Show, the actor–who was selling his newest work within the upcoming movie The Whale–discussed his film historical past and recalled a state of affairs the place he was choked out by a pretend noose that was tied round his neck whereas filming a selected stunt for the 1999 film.
When requested by Clarkson how the state of affairs occurred, Fraser stated that whereas filming he was standing on his toes with the rope round his neck when director Stephen Sommers informed him it did not appear like he was choking and requested if he may “sell it” in one other take.
“The camera swooped around I went up on my toes and the guy holding the rope above, he pulled it up a little higher and I was stuck on my toes, I had nowhere to go but down,” Fraser defined. “So he was pulling up and I was going down. And the next thing I knew, my elbow was in my ear, the world was sideways, there was gravel in my teeth and everyone was really quiet.”
The actor would not particularly say he misplaced consciousness following the scene, however he remembers coming to after, with the stunt coordinator above him clapping and calling his identify to wake him up. “I was like, ‘What happened?’ and he says, ‘Congratulations, you’re in the club, same thing happened to Mel Gibson on Braveheart.'”
Last month, Brendan Fraser spoke in a separate interview and spoke about the potential of returning for an additional Mummy film, saying, “…it’s kinda been an open-ended question for some time now. I’m not opposed to it.”
