Wilson explained she was in the middle of a scene for the action film, “Bride Hard,” when things went very wrong.

“In the middle of a night shoot, my last scene of the movie, so I’d done all these kick-ass fight sequences and then just in the last one, I got hit in the face with the butt of a gun,” she said.

“So it was a complete accident and was such a shock.”

Wilson expressed appreciation for those who reached out to see how she was feeling after the unexpected incident.

Wilson acknowledged that action movies can pose a danger at times, but she didn’t seem overly concerned about what transpired.

“I hopefully will be totally, totally fine,” she said.

Wilson’s movie was permitted to continue filming amid the SAG-AFTRA strike due to the fact that it is an independently produced film.
