Johnny Depp Took 'Violent' Horse Fall Filming Lone Ranger
The Pirates of the Caribbean hunk plays Tonto opposite Armie Hammer's Lone Ranger in the Disney adaptation of the classic TV show, which is slated for a 2013 release.
But filming the Western was tough on Depp, who suffered a terrifying injury when a shoot went wrong.
He tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "I'm lucky to be here. I've done a number of films on horseback and I've taken a couple of spills but this was a violent one.
"I had a good relationship with the horse, whose name is Scout, and when I look at the tape I can see that Scout saved my life.
"I went down badly and I was dragged for 25 yards and in the end the horse jumped over me and just clipped me with his back legs."
