She really is such a wonderful person!
After various zombie extras were injured on the Toronto set of Resident Evil 5 when they fell off a shifting set, leading lady Milla Jovovich took time out of her schedule to spend time with the hospitalized cast members!
She reveals via Twitter:
Hey every1, it's been a horrible day here at "camp evil". As a lot of u hve heard, there was an accident n a bunch of our amazing zombie extras fell in a chase sequence. One incredibly brave woman is still in the hospital, but she is recovering well, thank the Lord. The good news is, all our other extras came back after receiving medical attention at different hospitals and wanted to continue shooting! So that made us feel better to see how passionate they are! We are praying for akiko, who is still in the hospital n will go see her in a little while to make sure she's feeling ok. Oh man. I've been feeling sick to my stomach all day waiting for news on how she is. Please pray for her too! Xo m
On my way to see akiko at the hospital! I'm going to show her all your incredibly sweet and supportive messages! Thanks again for all your thoughts and wishes for everyone involved!
I jst saw akiko (who goes by April btw) and she's in a lot of pain. She injured her back. Thank god she's moving her hands and feet and not in critical condition. She's a piano player. Her brother plays the violin. I promised her that I would come and see her every week while I'm here to give her support and strength in her recovery. I can't believe she said she wants to come back and finish her part, she's incredible. I will keep u all posted in how she's doing over these next weeks. Xo m
G'mornin every1! Well, "camp evil" is slowly waking up after such a tough day yesterday. I jst finished make up n the sun is up, ppl r bustling abt, preparing 2 start the day. I'm glad 2 hear that April's (the girl who got injured yesterday) brother Christian is here w us this morning as a zombie extra! I'm gonna ask him how her night went and hopefully if he's here, she's doing better! I'm gonna go start wArming up for the sequence we're shooting this week n hopefully we're all gonna have a blast 2day! Thanks again for all your kind messages for our sweet, amazing zombie extras! We couldn't make these films w out their hard work and enthusiasm and we're so lucky so many ppl love to come and be a part of the RE SERIES!
Not a lot of people in her position would show this much concern, let alone make the effort to visit an extra every week until they recover! We really can't commend her enough for making it such a priority, and emphasizing that movie-making is a truly collaborative effort that every single cast and crew member is an important part of!
Our thoughts go out to the injured and recovering!
Hopefully the rest of production will continue without any more complications!
