Craig's Teeth Knocked Out
New James Bond star Daniel Craig was left toothless and bleeding when a fight scene for upcoming movie Casino Royale went horribly wrong. The British actor, who was shooting in Prague, Czech Republic, had his London-based dentist flown out to fix caps onto his broken teeth. Craig now has to sport gum shields during action scenes for protection. An insider says, "Daniel was filming with some minor actors when he got hit in the face. He was reeling from a heavy blow and staggered back holding his face. He put his hand to his mouth but the blood started to seep through his fingers - it was horrible."
That is HORRIBLE! I have this deeply rooted fear of / disgust for teeth being knocked out. For one, I always fear it could happen to me, secondly, it's one of the most disfiguring, irreversible injuries you can sustain in your face, IMO. I mean, sure, you can always get fake teeth, but it's just not the same. You'll never have sensitivity in them again, they'll never be as sturdy and useful as your real teeth. It's just horrible.
I don't really know Craig all that much, haven't seen any movies with him yet (at least not that I'm aware of... I might have, but he just didn't leave a lasting impression), didn't want him to play Bond, but this is really really bad. I feel sorry for him. I know he's getting help and the best possible treatment, but nobody should lose their teeth x.x;. Now I guess I should be happy that Pierce Brosnan isn't Bond anymore >.>;;;. Imagine him being the one losing the teeth! *cries*
