Aaron Taylor-Johnson says he lost a ‘chunk’ of his hand and passed out while filming a stunt for the new Bullet Train movie

The actor sustained the injury while performing a stunt for the Bullet Train movie.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson has revealed that he lost a chunk of his hand and passed out during production for Bullet Train.

Speaking at the film’s Los Angeles premiere, the British actor told Variety that he was on a “crazy mad keto diet” to get lean for his film role and therefore had low blood sugar levels.

During one sequence, the actor was drop-kicked across the room and sustained an injury to his hand and also passed out.

“The one sharp bit of the corner, where there wasn't any padding, took a chunk out of my hand. And I literally went, wham, passed out," he said.

"And then I came back and was like, 'Should we go again?' and they were like, 'No, no, no. You gotta go get stitches at the hospital.' So then I spent the night in the hospital," Taylor-Johnson continued.
