Los Angeles: Hugh Jackman may have decided not to play a superhero on-screen but the actor played a life saver for co-star Zac Efron when he rescued him from fire.
In a recent interview with MTV News, Efron said the ‘Logan’ star saved him after the fire got too out of control on the sets of their upcoming feature, ‘The Greatest Showman’, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“It started to get late, and some of the pyrotechnics got a little bit too hot. We burst out of the building. It looked great on camera. We didn’t know it (during the stunt), but it was pretty intense. I watched playback, and he saved me from a burning building. It later exploded that night. It was a set, but it later burned down,” Efron said.
“Hugh Jackman saving you from a burning building? It’s every girl’s dream,” he joked.
‘The Greatest Showman’ is a film about PT Barnum (Jackman), founder of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, is out Christmas Day.
