On-Set Accident During a Steamy Scene in Shane Warne Docuseries Landed Lead Actors in Hospital
Accidents happen on set during filming most of the time when things do not go as planned. But this time, two actors ended up seeking medical attention after filming a sex scene that went awfully wrong. Channel 9’s new docuseries Warnie based on the life and accomplishments of late Aussie cricketer Shane Warne apparently features a steamy sequence where the lead actors portraying Warne and his ex-wife and mother of three children, Simone Callahan had to get hot and heavy for a scene that was filmed in Melbourne.
Marny Kennedy, the actress portraying Callahan, opened up about the challenges of the filming process, per Metro. One particular bedroom scene reportedly led to Kennedy suffering a broken wrist and her co-actor Alex Williams, who plays Warne, ended up cracking the back of his head. "We were going down a corridor and we were meant to push into the bedroom and land on the bed, but we both completely missed the bed," explained the actress as they were both rushed to the hospital. "We ended up sitting in the emergency room together, he with a bandage around his head and me with my wrist strapped."
The hospital they were taken to was a specialty care center for the elderly and they decided to take pictures with the two actors who were still dressed as Warne and Callahan. "It was just Alex and me with our bleached hair, fully still in wardrobe, sitting there surrounded by elderly residents," Kennedy added. Williams and Kennedy have actually known each other for over a decade, per the outlet and despite the on-set accident, they ended up finding humor in it. The duo got personalized mugs made up with their ER photo on them for the whole crew to commemorate the end of the filming.
According to Daily Mail, the trailer of the docuseries titled Warnie received a lot of backlash upon its release which depicted the late Aussie cricketer in various phases of his life. Viewers also slammed the upcoming show for being made just six months after his death on March 4, 2022. The network creating the show also confirmed that the production of the series began just three weeks after his death.
52-year-old Warne passed away on the Thai island of Koh Samui due to a “suspected heart attack,” per CNN. “Well, now I couldn’t be happier and prouder that I have your genes. I am lucky and will forever be so proud to call you my Dad forever. I love you to infinity and back and I will miss you forever,” Warne's daughter, Brooke said during that time. Warnie is set to air in two parts later this year.
