Actor injured during onstage fight scene of `Macbeth`

London: An actor appearing alongside Kenneth Branagh in `Macbeth` was hospitalised after a fight scene went wrong.

The unnamed man sustained an injury while acting out a sword fight involving Branagh during a stage production of the show at a deconsecrated Victorian church in Manchester, England, reported Telegraph online.

The actor, who is said to have been struck with a metal sword, played through the pain to complete his turn on stage, but was taken to hospital after the curtain came down.

The production is part of the Manchester International Festival, and a spokesman for the event confirmed the injured actor was not seriously hurt.
