Fringe: Torture Scene Puts Joshua Jackson In Hospital
Joshua Jackson has revealed that he had to recive hospital treatment after a torture scene in Sky Onne show Fringe went wrong.
The former Dawson’s Creek star plays Peter Bishop in the sci-fi series said: “They didn’t even use the take because there was blood coming out of my nose, and it didn’t fit into the scene. I was strapped onto a table, and we stuck a copper wire up my nose with a rubber protector, but that popped off during the scene in the midst of all the craziness, so it tore my sinus. It felt like someone taking a steel wheel to the back of your eyeball.”
He continued: “It sounds dramatic but it was more comedic than anything else. They didn’t rush me to hospital straight away. My brother Jonathan, a New York paramedic, was astonished. I had to get the doctor to write me a note, saying that I couldn’t stick any foreign objects up my nose. It’s my favourite doctor’s note ever.”
Fringe returns on Sky1 and Sky1 HD on Sunday March 22.
