Making action films in Thailand can be dangerous. In Chocolate for example, star Jija Yanin took a sock to an eye, and a stuntman fell off a building and had to be hospitalized. Of course it's all caught on film and used as part of the "no wires, no stunt doubles, no CGI" sales pitch.
In her latest movie, Jija Deu Suay Du, Jija fell off a building. She talks about the experience in the latest BK magazine:
I’m scared of heights but I usually end up having to jump off or fight on high places. In Deu Suay Du, I had to fight on a shaky wooden bridge. It was hard enough just to walk on it without falling off. But I had to do a fight scene. It was really challenging and stressful.
I fell off a two-story building during filming. I banged my head and I blacked out for a while. I was taken to a hospital for an X-ray and an MRI scan. That night I couldn’t sleep because of a terrible headache. But the next day I just had to get back to work.
What a trooper! She deserves some time off for bakery hunting. Read the whole interview for more from the 25-year-old action heroine.
