Making films is inherently a dangerous job: you’re surrounded by thousands of watts of electricity, lots of wires, and in the case of many films, special effects. You’re also putting your life in the hands of strangers who might not even speak the same language as you if you’re relegated to Direct-to-dvd movies, and if you’re looking for that extra profile boost, you probably insist on doing “all” of your own stunts (but obviously not the really hard ones.)

Many actors, like Meryl Streep will probably never encounter a near-death experience on set, but if you’re a Sylvester Stallone or a Jackie Chan, maybe it’s a good idea to just be that little bit more aware of your surroundings, because there’s a good chance any number of on-set things could cause you harm. And judging by past incidences, real threats to life can and do happen. »
