Los Angeles: Australian actress Melissa George got hurt many times while shooting for the upcoming series `Haunted` but is glad she could learn fighting tactics.

The 36-year-old had learned martial arts to play the role of an espionage operative for a private intelligence agency, but got severely injured during the shoots.

"I spent months learning a martial art called Keysi and I got seriously injured a couple of times," quoted her as saying.

"I still can`t close my right hand and my hip is damaged, so I can`t get out of a car like I used to. But I can kill a man with my bare hands. I frighten myself nowadays," she added.

"Haunted" will be on air Oct 4.
