Dominic Cooper has revealed that he almost blinded his Dracula Untold co-star Luke Evans with a sword while filming.
-
The 36-year-old star said in an interview with Shortlist magazine, "I nearly poked Luke's eye out with a sword.
-
"We were trying to be careful and not use metal swords, and I think because of movement within the sword it bounced back into his eye – so I don't take full responsibility. It was pretty terrible."
-
On playing the villain Mehmed in the film Cooper added: "Mehmen is a terrifying man and desperate to take over the world.
-
"I love parts like this because you can be daring and they're quite eccentric and over the top. And I'm wearing golden armour."
-
Dracula Untold is in cinemas from October 3.
