Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - PTI

The death of his stunt dou­ble while film­ing an ac­tion se­quence for the 2002 film XXX made ac­tor Vin Diesel (right) more se­ri­ous about such scenes.

The 48-year-old ac­tion star now prefers to keep a check on se­cu­rity mea­sures, stunt work and the re­hearsals while work­ing on ac­tion scenes, re­ported ET online. “There was a bad ex­pe­ri­ence early on, where we lost one of the stunt guys; a guy named Harry O’Con­nor, who was a great guy on XXX,” Diesel said. O’Con­nor died dur­ing a rap­pelling stunt when he hit a bridge at high speed and was killed in­stantly. “That was a big eye opener for me and that made me fo­cus on safety and re­hearsal. I prob­a­bly take the re­hearsal of ac­tion se­quences and chore­og­ra­phy, that much more se­ri­ous be­cause of it,” he added.

Re­leased in 2002, XXX went on to be­come a big box of­fice suc­cess.
