Aaron Taylor-johnson Lost a Chunk of His Hand and Passed Out
“We were in a fight sequence, and I get drop-kicked across the room. And the one sharp bit of the corner where there wasn’t any padding took a chunk out of my hand,” the “Kraven the Hunter” star shared with Variety. “And I literally went wham, passed out. And then I came back and asked, ‘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 joked, “You know when you sign up for a David Leitch movie, you must get a couple of battle scars, some war wounds.”
On the red carpet of the film’s premiere, co-star Brad Pitt, who handled 95 percent of his own physical stunts in Jackie Chan-inspired fighting scenes, said that he had not been injured on filming.
“Oh, I certainly went home and went ‘ahh,’” Pitt said. “But no. Aaron, on the other hand… Brian [Tyree Henry], on the other hand… The youngins, you know.”
Actor Taylor-Johnson has previously stated that “Bullet Train” originally had the intention of being “a dark, R-rated brutal action thriller” until the performers “hammed it up and made it light,” as HERO Magazine has reported.
“I don’t know what happened, but it became a comedy!” Taylor-Johnson said. “We all just had a laugh. [Director] David was really open to playing and exploring; it felt like a big breath of fresh air — we had a fantastic time.”

He said it was “the most strange film set I’ve ever been on” because of the COVID-19 measures.
Taylor-Johnson concluded, “We got tested every day, we had masks and then the plastic visor over the top, and then wasn’t allowed to interact with one another, you physically can’t shake a hand or, at the end of the day, give your mates a hug. That was an odd atmosphere when you’ve been lucky enough to have had that intimacy in the past and that collaboration you feed off.”
