Currently in Dunhuang shooting for new Mainland drama 巾幗大將軍, Elanne Kong had an accident during the shoot a few days ago. The accident occurred when Elanne worked with horses for the first time. During the shoot, because Elanne speaking her lines close to the horse, she was unaware when the horse's kick came towards her.
Yesterday Elanne accepted a long-distance phone interview, she said: "Actually it's nothing too serious. You all don't need to be so worried. It was just because I wasn't aware that the horse's patpat (butt) was facing me. Just like that, the horse made a forceful kick on my thigh, which immediately swelled up. And because of that, a horseshoe print was left on me too!"
In fact earlier when Elanne was shooting for the film Holding Love High (高舉愛情), she was injured on the waist by a dumbbell. Asked which accident was more painful for her? She said: "This accident was more painful because the horse's force was just so strong. When the horse kicked me, it felt like a 100 pounds of force went on me, so painful." Elanne said she clenched her teeth to bear the pain, but eventually she was unable to withstand the severe pain and the tears just came running down. She said after the accident, the crew accompanied her to the hospital, fortunately after the doctor treated her, she was fine. She will just need to allow 3-4 days of rest before she recovers. Elanne said: "The crew is great, especially let me take the day off, but tomorrow I will be able to resume work, just can't do the action scenes yet."
