Actress Helen Baxendale was given a fright as she filmed her new U.K. drama series in South Africa when a baboon walked onto the set.
The former Friends star ran from the beast during the shoot for British TV show Kidnap and Ransom, but came out of hiding when the monkey settled down and watched the TV cameras rolling.
She tells Britain's The Sun, "We were filming and I had to hide behind a tree. I became aware of a presence. I turned around and there was a baboon.
"Just before it happened, someone had told me how dangerous they are. So I stayed very still until it wandered on the set and sat and watched everyone film the scene."
