"The director decided he wanted me and Chris [Hemsworth, the Huntsman] to ride into the castle grounds, jump off our horses, then storm the castle, fighting people as we go," Sam recalls.
The game-for-anything English actor proceeded to follow those instructions. He didn't expect to get his foot caught in the stirrup, fall of his horse and get dragged on his face in full armor gear.
The worst part? "Looking behind me and seeing Chris kinda gallantly glide off his horse like James Dean," says Sam. "The guy was pretty damn cool."
Snow White and the Huntsman is in theaters this Friday, June 1st.
