Keith Allen - Keith Allen's Gold Tooth Stolen
British actor Keith Allen was left fuming during a recent shoot in South Africa after his gold tooth was stolen.
The Shallow Grave star took his tooth out and left it on a table in his hotel room while he was working on new TV drama The Runaway last year (10). Allen, father of pop star Lily Allen, was furious when he realised the item had gone missing and he was left scouting around for a replacement to avoid causing problems with the TV production.
He tells Britain's The Sun, "There must be something about me and teeth when I'm filming abroad, I don't have a lot of luck.
"It caused all sorts of problems because I'd almost finished filming, and suddenly I didn't have a gold tooth any more. For continuity, you can't have that.
"We were all dashing around trying to find a replacement so I could get my final scenes done."
Allen had the tooth fitted after he took a knock to the mouth during a shoot in Budapest, Hungary in 2007.
