The incident occurred on the set of the film “The Three Musketeers” and almost ended in tragedy.
Alexey Makarov, along with other "musketeers", had breakfast in Spartan conditions on the battlefield. The actor whipped the wine straight from the bottle, which, according to the scenario, was supposed to scatter from an enemy bullet.
This stunt trick, as a rule, passes without overlays, however, this time it was different. Bullet implants were placed in a wine bottle, which were to break the container into small pieces, which they actually did. To his misfortune, Makarov, just at that time, brought the bottle too close to his face, and glass splashed with small splashes straight at him. The artist’s eyes were protected by a wide-brimmed hat and vision was not affected.
The ambulance was on duty at the set and immediately assisted the victim. Makarov feels satisfactory, but make-up artists will now have a lot of work. Scars have to mask in the course of work.
The wife of Alexey Makarov, upon learning of the misfortune of her husband, immediately flew to the northern capital, where the shooting took place.
