New York: Actor Rupert Friend shot himself in head with a blank while filming "Hitman: Agent 47."

The 33-year-old actor accidentally fired a blank which bounced up off the floor and hit him while working on the action movie, reported the New York Post.

"I shot myself in the head. You fire blanks, but the guns eject real brass, hot cartridges. They're like 400 degrees... The cartridge ejected, hit the ground, bounced up and cut my head open," Friend said.

The "Homeland" actor was left "amazed" as he did not need any stitches on the wound and the take ended up in the final draft of the movie.

"It was fine in the end, which I'm amazed about, because I've had head wounds before and they bleed like all hell," he said.
