Johnny takes a tumble!
Johnny Depp had a near death experience when he fell off his horse during a shoot for Lone Ranger.
The actor himself admitted that his stunt horse, Scout, saved the day (and his life)
Depp stated the following:
I'm lucky to be here. I've done a number of films on horseback and I've taken a couple of spills but this was a violent one.
I had a good relationship with the horse, which was named Scout, and when I look at the tape I can see that Scout saved my life.
I went down badly and I was dragged for 25 yards and in the end the horse just jumped over me and clipped me with his back legs.
That's some quick thinking on the horse's part!
Now we don't have to worry when we see Dark Shadows tomorrow!
