Filming on the new James Bond movie Skyfall was brought to a halt on Saturday after a stunt driver crashed into an extra.
Dame Judi Dench, who plays the superspy’s boss M, was on the London set to film a high-speed chase scene when a car ploughed into a background actor.

The extra, whose name has not been released, was treated at the scene by medics before he was transported to hospital.

A witness tells Britain’s The Sun, “All the cars were going full pelt. Judi looked horrified but the man was clearly in good hands. He was taken to hospital as a precaution but he’s all right.”

Director Sam Mendes called off the shoot, at Millbank in the U.K. capital, for an hour to allow everyone to recover from the shock.
