While filming Robert Rodriguez’s Red Sonja in which she does her own stunts, Rose McGowan suffered a serious injury which halted production and now requires six more months of rehabilitation. Darn. I was looking forward to… what was the name of that movie again?
“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!”
Thankfully, no one has ever said “that girl gives good elbow” so that surgery shouldn’t have too much of a negative effect.
