James McAvoy has vowed to quit shooting daredevil scenes and employ a stunt double after repeatedly injuring himself on set.
The Atonement actor is considering giving up performing his own risky stunts after hurting his knee in an airplane scene on the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past.
He says, “I cracked my knee quite badly on the third take but that was just my own fault. The plane wasn’t even throwing me around. I just tripped over a camera. I’m going to be limping for a week.
“The first time they did it, they said, ‘Do you want to rehearse?’ I said, ‘No, let’s just do it and see where it throws me’. I’m quite bendy, quite bouncy, I usually land well.
“I reckon I’ve only got four or five more years of doing that kind of s**t before it’s like, ‘Whoa! We’ll be getting the stunt double in here.'”Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
