TV personality, Denrele Edun fell and fainted on set of the new movie, Pepper Soup.
The actor was to act a scene, where he will fall and faint but it turned to an accident as he hit his forehead on a sharp object, got seriously injured and passed out.
He narrated the ordeal below…
“They say that true artists suffer for their craft, but perhaps no artist has suffered like myself on this hustle of mine!
All in a bid to make my acting more convincing, I was supposed to drop into a faint in the very first scene of the movie “PEPPER SOUP” but I guess I miscalculated and fell hard on a metallic object on the floor that pierced my face. I kinda blacked out for a few seconds and felt something warm running down my face…Truth is, a blood vessel just a lil above my right eye (an inch away from my eyebrow bone) was burst open and it was hard to control the bleeding!
The production team was stunned and scared at the same time. They almost called off the production but I refused!
THE SHOW MUST GO ON!
And I finished this job with all the grace, strength, resilience and amazing character interpretation that I could muster!”
