Steven Ma gets hit on the left eye while shooting a fighting scene
Steven Ma was shooting for a Hengdian TV series Mandarin Duck Pendant (鴛鴦佩) and got an eye injury. In one scene, Steven was fighting several martial artists and someone accidentally injured Steven's left eye while charging up to him. At the time, he felt some pain as tears came streaming down, and his contacts started shifting too. However, the staff werenít aware that there was an accident. To avoid slowing down the shooting progress, Steven just used eye drops to take out his contacts and then got right back to shooting. In fact, Steven's eyes are considered quite calamitous. Just a few years ago, he was kicked by a horse and injured his right eye.
Steven said nobody wants accidents to happen. That night, he immediately put ice on his eye to prevent his eye from swelling and thus affecting the shoot on the following day. However, the next day when he got back to work, his eyes were still swollen anyway. The director saw the professionalism in Steven and understood his situation, so he allowed Steven to get a day off for bed rest. The makeup artist and lightning staff were also considerate, being very careful while putting makeup on him and reducing the lightning to maintain Stevenís good looks.
