Kent Students Filming Death Scene Find Dead Body

by | 21st, March 2011

WHILE shooting a death scene for their project,  film undergraduates from Canterbury Christ Church University found a real dead body at Botany Bay in Broadstairs.

Says student Dave Larke, 48:

“It was a bit freaky to say the least. Our actress looked up and saw a bloke pulling something out of the sea, then she suddenly realised it was a dead body. We went over to see if the guy was all right with it because we could see he was having trouble with his phone. And just to make sure that we weren’t wrong in what we had seen. I was probably a foot away from it at the closest point, which wasn’t nice at all.”

He adds:

“Dave continued: “Our crew was left shocked, but I think the girls suffered more than the men that were there.”

No, not the woman who died. The actress.

“It eventually affected virtually every member of the crew. The chances of that happening are virtually nil. You are looking to shoot a scene and it’s happening right behind you.”

The crew start shooting Libya Armageddon this Wednesday…
