Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry broke her right arm while filming a scene for the supernatural thriller “Gothika” in Canada, a publicist for the movie said Thursday.
Berry, 34, was filming “one of the more physically demanding scenes” when she was hurt Wednesday, said Joe Everett, a spokesman for the Warner Bros. production. Everett said he did not have details of the scene.
Berry broke her ulna, a long bone in the forearm, and was treated at a Montreal hospital and released, Everett said.
The movie was in its fifth week of a nine-week shoot. It was unclear when Berry might return to the set.
In the movie, Berry plays a criminal psychologist who wakes up to find she is accused of murdering her husband and is a patient in the asylum where she works.
The movie is set for release in October.
She has been hurt before while filming. She suffered an eye injury while an action sequence was being lensed in Spain for last year’s James Bond movie, “Die Another Day.”
