Actress Emmy Rossum contracted frostbite while filming her Tv show Shameless.

The Phantom of the Opera star was struck down with the skin condition while shooting a scene for the U.S. comedy-drama in January (14).

Rossum's character Fiona is seen running barefoot down an icy street in an episode which aired in the U.S. on Sunday (16Mar14), and during the broadcast, the actress gave commentary on Twitter.com, writing, "I got frostbite on my feet shooting this shoe-less scene. And I can tell you firsthand, it's not a good look."

She then joked about her ordeal, adding, "Gives new meaning to 'cold feet'".
