Evangeline Lilly felt the nasty cuts of misogyny firstly side when she was performing a stunt on Lost years ago.
During a Wednesday panel about women working in the stunt business, the Ant-Man and the Wasp star claimed a power-tripping stunt coordinator on the ABC series intentionally went her injured after she dared his wish to have a stunt double perform the stunt.
The stunt in question verified Lilly’s character Kate falling down a tree and nursing on to a fork. After holding on performing the stunt herself, Lilly said she requested to have anti-abrasion moleskin wrap around her forearms for shelter — but the “misogynistic” stunt coordinator said it would be seen on camera.
So she did the stunt bare-armed, over and over again. Each occasion, more of her scalp was ripped off by the rough tree bark. New Skin — a liquid bandage firebrand — was dreadfully will be submitted to her wounds after each take.
“There remain open meanders, pus-y and oozing. I looked like a monstrosity. My mummy said,’ You’ll never be able to wear an dinner gown again! ‘”
To this day, Lilly imagines the nasty harm was penalty for working against the coordinator.
Contrary to his remark on primed, Lilly was sure the moleskin wouldn’t have indicated up on the screen. She explained 😛 TAGEND
“I felt it was him saying,’ I’m going to put you in your neighbourhood for standing up to me.’ It was either cow to his influence or injured myself. I was in my 20 s then. Now, I would probably back down.”
Sure, injuries are part of the job, but safety should always come first — most certainly before the male self-love. Ick!
