I nearly poked Luke's eye out: Dominic Cooper

Los Angeles: Actor Dominic Cooper says that he almost blinded Luke Evans while they were filming a fight scene for 'Dracula Untold'.

Cooper admitted to getting a bit carried away during the fight scenes with his co-star, who plays the titular character, and was left feeling "terrible" when he almost "poked his eye out" with a sword, reports suggest.

In an interview with a magazine, Cooper said: "I nearly poked Luke's eye out with a sword. We were trying to be careful and not use metal swords, and I think because of movement within the sword it bounced back into his eye - so I don't take full responsibility. It was pretty terrible."
