Actor Gabriel Byrne
narrowly avoided a fatal snakebite while filming his new movie in the Australian outback. The star was left shaken by the incident, on the set of Jindabyne
, but his laid back director wasn't worried.
Byrne says, "I was walking through the Bush one day and I stepped on a Brown-headed snake. If I'd stepped on the other end he'd have bitten me - and the bite can be deadly. I said to Ray (Lawrence, director), 'I was almost killed!' And he said, 'No worries mate. You would have had 24 hours.'"
