Apparently Ashley Greene isn’t the only [movie id="420622"]“Eclipse”[/movie] cast member getting hurt on set. Her onscreen love, [movieperson id="1017548"]Jackson Rathbone[/movieperson], was also injured on the set of the David Slade-helmed flick earlier this week. Although he was taken to the hospital, he was able to get back to work shortly after being injured.
No word on just how he injured himself, but according to a statement from a rep for the film, he’s doing fine now. “Actor Jackson Rathbone of ‘The Twilight Saga’ movies was slightly injured yesterday [September 22] during a fight scene rehearsal,” the rep told Access Hollywood. “As a precaution, he was driven to the hospital and checked out by a doctor. He’s fine and is back at work on the set of ‘Eclipse’ today.”
Earlier this month, Greene dished to MTV News about the intense training for some of the series’ most violent scenes. “We’re getting battered and bruised, but it’s good, though,” she said. “We’re kind of just getting into it. All the battle and fight stuff is going to happen next month.”
Photos of the actress appeared online showing her with black-and-blue marks on her body, but she assured fans that there’s no need to worry for her well-being. “It’s going really smoothly. It’s going really well,” she said. “We’re all working really hard and learning how to kick butt. I don’t know if you’ve seen recent pictures, but I have bruises all over my body. It’s those wires. It looks like a hand mark on my arm, and it’s definitely from wires.”
