Teen actor Will Poulter put the filming of The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader in jeopardy – he needed stitches after he was struck on the head by a surfboard on his day off. The Son Of Rambow star shot the upcoming movie in Australia, and headed to a beach in Queensland during a break in his filming schedule. But his surfing trip soon turned into a disaster. He says, “I got hit by a surfboard and the fin cut open my head.
It was terrifying because there was blood everywhere. Luckily, the cut only needed six stitches. But when I called Michael Apted, the director, he freaked out. He thought, the cut might be on my forehead or the front of my face but luckily, it was at the back and covered by hair.” And Poulter wasn’t the only one who suffered during the cast’s time in Australia – his co-star, Georgie Henley, fainted after shooting an underwater scene. She adds, “There was a panic. They had to get oxygen for me. In hospital, they checked I hadn’t swallowed any water or anything.”
Will plays the role of Eustace Clarence Scrubb in ‘The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader’. The film releases in India on December 3rd and in the U.S. on December 10th.
