Actor Adrien Brody
almost died during a night-off from shooting new movie The Darjeeling Limited
in India last Christmas, when he had an unexpected encounter with a low-hanging power cable.
The Oscar winner had been enjoying a mountain ride on the back of a pick-up truck when he suddenly had to fight for his life.
He says, "We had this wonderful dinner together. The whole cast and crew ate in front of a fireplace and we went out in these ox carts. It was really beautiful. On the way back, the oxes had gone home and I hopped a ride on the back of a pick-up truck and was riding back with my girlfriend. It was such a beautiful, wonderful night and I was looking in her eyes, standing on the back of this pick-up truck and a low-hanging power line went under my neck and caught me in the neck.
"I had this North Face jacket on and managed to get it out from under me. I literally almost died on Christmas last year looking into my girlfriend's eyes. It was so profound, the moment was really beautiful and I survived it and that was a gift."
