Nicollette SheridanActress Nicollette Sheridan suffered "excruciating" pain on the set of new U.S. TV movie Honeymoon for One after falling off a horse and landing on a jagged rock. 

The former Desperate Housewives star portrays Eve in the Hallmark Channel film, about a woman who heads off on an adventurous honeymoon to Ireland after calling off her engagement a week before her wedding. 

Sheridan, a seasoned horse rider, insisted on pulling off her own stunts, but she tumbled off the animal during one fall scene - and it wasn't until after the cameras stopped rolling that she discovered how bad the injury really was. 

She tells WENN, "For the stunt (as character Eve), I broke my heel and went tumbling down the hill and then ended up in the ice-cold water and fell off the horse and actually, I only got hurt once, and that was in the river. 

"In the middle of the scene, as Eve's ranting and raving, I lose my balance and I fall on this pointy rock and the pain was quite excruciating, but, you know, the show must go on. And so we finished it, and I didn't even realise, 'til two days later, I had a big black - jet-black bruise... on my thigh. The costumer said, 'My God, what happened to your leg?' I was like, 'What? I got bumps and bruises', and I saw it and thought, 'Good Lord!' But that's finally healed. It's gone."
