Zoe Kravitz developed a fear of heights on the set of new film sequel Insurgent after nerves got the better of her as she prepared to pull off a daring stunt.
The star reprised her role as Christina from last year’s Divergent, the first film adaptation of the Veronica Roth book trilogy, for the second installment of the dystopian movies, but she couldn’t bring herself to leap off a rooftop ledge this time around, despite performing similar stunts in the last movie.
She tells the New York Post, “My body would not allow me to take that last step. We’re harnessed in… but I couldn’t do it.”
A stunt double ended up taking Kravitz’s place for the action sequence.
Insurgent opens nationwide in 2D, Digital 3D, IMAX® 3D and RealD™ 3D on Friday, March 20th, but if you want to see some photos from the New York premiere in the meantime, click here!
