Michael Biehn Gets Choked Out in First behind-the-Scenes Footage from The Victim
Sometimes acting can get a bit out of hand, especially method acting, as you're about to see.
During a scene in which star Michael Biehn was set to struggle with a crooked cop, played by Ryan Honey, things went shall we say ... not as planned? According to Bloody Disgusting here's how it went down:
"According to Biehn, he insisted - against stunt coordinator Tony Snegoff's advice - that Honey not only use a genuine LAPD chokehold, but that he actually cut off his air supply in order to heighten the realism of the scene. Unfortunately, the actor didn't "tap out" soon enough - as you can see, confused cast and crew members wait several seconds before realizing he's actually blacked out from the pressure (note his twitching hands). Luckily, Biehn came out of the experience unscathed...though needless to say, they went with a different hold when doing re-takes. Talk about dedication."
The Victim stars Michael Biehn (Terminator, Aliens, Grindhouse), Ryan Honey ("ER," Hallowed Ground), Jennifer Blanc ("Dark Angel," "Party of Five"), Denny Kirkwood (Never Been Kissed, Groove), and genre favorite Danielle Harris (Rob Zombie’s Halloween, Hatchet II).
Look for more soon.
Annie's (Jennifer Blanc) life is in jeopardy after she’s witnessed the horrific rape and murder of her closest friend. Fleeing from two attackers (Ryan Honey, Denny Kirkwood), she stumbles across Kyle (Michael Biehn), a recluse living in the middle of the woods.
Kyle ﬁnds the stillness of the woods comforting. The ruggedly handsome loner stays far from civilization - that is - until a single knock on his door throws his solitary life into chaos.
Two worlds collide in this psychological thriller that will make you question your trust in mankind. WHO IS THE VICTIM?
