When you look at the eight big action films Arnold Schwarzenegger has starred in, you may be surprised to learn that one of those films included an unexpected explosion. Margolyes admitted that she did it intentionally, but it wasnt recorded on film. He had me in a position where I couldnt escape and lay on the floor. Arnold Schwarzenegger may have used the occasion to make a film about him.
Its unsurprising to learn that one of Arnold Schwarzenegger's major action films included an unexpected explosion. What's perhaps even more shocking is that it was the Governator himself that allegedly orchestrated the explosion in order to humiliate a co-star. That, in a sense, is what happened over two decades ago when the actor reportedly spit in the face of Miriam Margolyes while filming the 1999 action horror film End of Days.
Miriam Margolyes, 81, was interviewed on the Australian podcast Ive Got News For You (via Business Insider) when asked if there were any actors she didnt like working with. Margolyes said that he farted in my face, in reference to an End of Days fight scene. He did it deliberately, right in my face. I was playing Satans sister and he was putting me in a position where I couldnt escape and lying on the floor. And he just farted.
Don't try to locate the scene in the film once you've discovered it. Arnold Schwarzengger got away with showing Margolyes what a T-800 backside is capable of without his posteriors being recorded for posterity. It wasnt on film, Margolyes confessed. [I]t was in one of the pauses, but I havent forgiven him for it.
Miriam Margolyes is best known for her roles as the wizard Professor Sprout from the Harry Potter films. If the alleged farting had happened before either of the two films, it would have unfortunately gone before with 2011's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. Or, assuming he knew a thing or two about the tale, Hufflepuff loses 50 points.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has yet to respond to the allegations, but if he did in fact cut the cheese in Professor Sprouts' face on purpose, it's a pretty small thing for a guy that successful in terms of his career as an action star. It's perhaps unnecessary to suggest that something was gnawing at the actor about the 1997 film Batman & Robin, which would go on to highlight that by 1999, Schwarzenegger was very much not able to da choppa as he used
