Cary Elwes has spent much of his career fighting diverse types of enemies, from maniacal kings to Jigsaw’s psychological and physically challenging traps. Some scenarios have been serious like the Saw series or verged on comical like the lead in Robin Hood: Men in Tights. But his latest enemy was closer to home for the Princess Bride actor as he experienced an off-screen incident requiring him to be airlifted to a hospital.
According to TMZ, a close source of the Ella Enchanted actor was allegedly bitten by a rattlesnake while working outside of his Malibu residence on April 23. When the incident occurred, it was unclear where the snake had bitten him. As the snake is considered poisonous, the source alleged it was server enough to call for the actor to be airlifted to the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center for treatment. They claimed it was the actor’s inner circle who wanted him to be seen by a doctor at the time. It was reported that the actor is making a full recovery at the medical facility after the accident.
