Jerry Yan witnessed body double’s fall

Taiwanese actor Jerry Yan had planned on personally shooting a fighting scene for his upcoming new movie Scarlet recently.

However, as the scene required many tough stunts like back and side flips, a stuntman took his place. Unfortunately during filming, the safety wire snapped and the stuntman fell from two-storey high.

The stuntman was then rushed to a nearby hospital and was fortunately not severely injured.

Jerry, who witnessed the fall of his body double, recalled, "It'd be me that fall, if the wire had snapped a little later."

This is not the first time that injuries have happened on set.

During martial art practice before the filming commenced, Jerry had wounded his right index finger. And just a month ago, the actor suffered from a swollen face when filming for a scene in which he fell into water.

When asked if the film's producer wants to continue with the actor performing stunts personally, she said, "[Jerry Yan] rarely used a body double, but we wouldn't let him do any dangerous scenes."

Jerry has since expressed that he plans to pray for his safety and the well-being of his stunt double.
