Scream­ing ac­tress is a real fright!

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

THIS is the ac­tress who de­serves an Os­car for her per­for­mance – af­ter po­lice burst onto film’s set, fear­ing her screams were real.

‘Hostage’ vic­tim Han­nah Lowe had been tied-up half naked and was be­ing threat­ened with a blow­torch in a pub base­ment when of­fi­cers stormed in on the film shoot.

Han­nah plays a woman held to ran­som in a fundrais­ing video for in­de­pen­dent flick Back­track, about four friends who end up be­ing tor­tured for war crimes they com­mit­ted in their past lives.

Wor­ried mem­bers of the pub­lic called po­lice when they heard Han­nah’s dis­tress­ing screams coming from The Sus­sex Arms, Tun­bridge Wells, Kent.

A cop dis­cov­ered Han­nah shack­led to a barstool, with her wrists and an­kles tied up, but left when he re­alised the mix-up.

Film pro­ducer Haydn West, 46, said: “The po­lice­man looked in, saw the lights and said ‘As you were’. Then he went. He didn’t check on Han­nah, just made his mind up by our de­meanour.
