‘The Maze Runner’ Crew Member Suffered Rattlesnake Bite on Set
A crewmember working on new post-apocalyptic teen movie The Maze Runner was admitted to hospital after he was bitten by a rattlesnake.
The male staff member was removing the reptile from the set in Louisiana when he suffered the bite, and was taken to a local medical centre for treatment.
Thomas Brodie-Sangster reveals the set was plagued with snakes throughout the shoot, but the bitten crew member went on to make a full recovery.
He tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, “We were seeing 10 snakes a day at the beginning and then by the end we were still catching four a day… Not all poisonous, but we had five different types of venomous snakes and two different kinds of poisonous spiders… He (the crew member) got bit, but it was fine. He got bit by a little baby rattlesnake. He did get rushed to the hospital, but he was the only one.”
Brodie-Sangster stars in the movie along with Dylan O’Brien and Will Poulter.
