Hollywood actress Letitia Wright ended up in hospital this week while filming for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – but she’s far from the only star to have had an accident on-set
It’s not all glitz and glamour being a movie star as Black Panther actress Letitia Wright discovered this week when she ended up in hospital after filming a stunt for Wakanda Forever – which went wrong.
The 27-year-old – who is reprising her role as Shuri – was involved in an “incident” with the stunt rig, which left her needing medical treatment.
A statement read: “Letitia Wright sustained minor injuries today while filming a stunt for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
“She is currently receiving care in a local hospital and is expected to be released soon.”
