Actress Rose McGowan was looking forward to kicking butt while working under the direction of her fiance’ Robert Rodriguez in “Red Sonja”, but a very serious injury has brought production of the film to a halt. Read more on Rose McGowan’s injuries below.
McGown was working on a film that is directed by her fiance… a comic book adaptation called “Red Sonja”. But Rose was injured doing her own stunts during filming.
“I had wrist and elbow surgery and they took part of my elbow out. I had really bad nerve damage from doing stunts – I do a lot of my own stunts,” McGowan recently told Tarts. “I could no longer use my arm, but now I can hold a fork and drive so we’re working our way up. It’ll probably be another six months of rehab, but It’s the price you pay for being really limber and being able to do back flips!”
McGowan, 35, has had a successful acting career with her roles in “Grindhouse,” “The Black Dahlia” and “Scream.” But the actress says she originally thought being an actress was pretty pathetic.
“I wasn’t trying to be an actor, I was standing outside of a gym waiting for my friend to come out and this woman he knew kept saying, ‘She should be in this movie blah blah blah’ and I was like, ‘Gross, I don’t want to be an actor! Ew!’ and then I found out they would pay me enough money for a down payment on an apartment,” McGowan said. “Otherwise I would have had to go back and live with dad in Seattle.
The film, ‘The Doomed Generation,’ became this huge cult movie and was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award and I’ve been following the Yellow Brick Road ever since…”
