Totally Unauthorized

A side of the film industry most people never see.

The entire time we were shooting in and around the circus tent, I kept reminding myself to be extra careful around the big metal stakes that were driven into the ground to hold up the tents:

Tent spike

I did really well until the last moment of the last night.

Right as we were getting ready to load our carts on the truck, a couple of us walked around the tents to do an ‘idiot check’ to make sure we hadn’t left anything behind and as I scanned the random bits of stuff  to make sure that none of it  was ours I walked right into a tent stake.

I’ve got a scrape surrounded by a green bruise on my shin – it looks like a moldy jelly donut.

Normally I don’t worry about the cuts and bruises that I get on my arms and legs, but this one’s huge and looks terrible, so even though it’s really hot today I don’t think I’m going to be wearing shorts.

    Awww…sorry about that, but don’t feel too bad. If there’s a way to have an accident on set, I believe I have a special gift for finding it.

    Out of cast and crew for a Gatorade commercial last April numbering close to 200, I was the only one in two days who was injured. Plowed off a hillside face first into the pavement – blood everywhere.

    You should have played your injury up – after mine, I was the most pampered person on the set.

    I second JCW – scrape sympathy! Especially when it looks terrible. People are all like, awwww!!! and go around saying what a trooper you are. Which you obviously totally are.
