Hollywood actor Daniel Craig lost consciousness while pretending to suffocate during a scene for his latest flick, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, as the cameras rolled.

The James Bond star is playing the character of journalist Mikael Blomkvist alongside lead character Rooney Mara in the Hollywood


adaptation of the books by late Swedish author Stieg Larsson.

Director David Fincher revealed that Craig had a close call on set when he had to be hoisted in the air with a plastic bag over his head. “Our stunt co-ordinator came in and said, ‘Daniel has to hold this little metal thing in his hand so that if he loses consciousness... as he’s gonna be acting like he’s suffocating, which is not very different from actually suffocating,” the Daily Express quoted Fincher as saying.

“He was hoisted up and we were rolling and as I’m watching the monitor I hear, ‘Ting, ting, ting’. We rush in to the room and he had passed out!” Flincher said.
