Brad Pitt rescues extra on Scotland set of new 'World War Z' movie
UPI News Service, 08/27/2011
Brad Pitt, filming a zombie flick in Scotland, rescued an extra who was almost trampled when she slipped in a crowd scene, a source on the set said.
The source, described as a "set insider," told The Scottish Sun the filming in Glasgow of a scene from "World War Z" where about 700 extras are trying to escape the zombies was "total chaos."
"Lots of people hurt themselves, and Brad came to the rescue of a woman who slipped. I don't think she could believe it when Brad picked her up," the source said. "He didn't have time to speak to her as it was mid-shoot. But she said afterwards how grateful she was, despite having a badly grazed knee."
Pitt wrapped up his role and left Scotland Friday, the Daily Record of Glasgow reported.
As he departed the Mar Hall Hotel in Bishopton in a chauffeured Jaguar, an enthusiastic fan handed Pitt, whose full name is William Bradley Pitt, a battered book of "Oor Wullie" comic strips. The strip, published in Scotland since 1937, features a hapless character often shown sitting on an overturned bucket.
