A Bahraini actress escaped death while shooting an execution scene in the TV series “Not a Tear of Sadness,” Emirati newspaper al-Bayan reported Tuesday.

Fatima Abdel Rehim’s leg slipped accidentally while a rope was tied around her neck.

“I saw death with my own eyes,” she was quoted as saying. “I hallucinated, cried and fainted. I was thinking at that moment of my mother and my children.”

Abdel Rehim was quickly saved by the show’s crew.
Director Mohammed al-Qafas said he was thankful that the actress is in good condition, adding that he made four crew members surround her while shooting the scene to deal with any emergencies.

A common problem facing production houses in the Gulf is the lack of professional teams to perform action scenes such as those produced by international cinema, said Qafas, adding: “We did our best to film that scene.”
