Hollywood star Nicolas Cage accidentally drank his own blood while portraying Count Dracula in new movie ‘Renfield’.
The 59-year-old actor sank his teeth into the role of Bram Stoker’s vampire opposite Nicholas Hoult as the bloodsucker’s downtrodden servant and he’s revealed he kept biting his own lip because his ceramic fake fangs were so sharp, reports ‘Female First UK’.
In an Ask-Me-Anything session on Reddit, Cage explained: “No reason in terms of method, but the fangs were genuine fangs, they were ceramic and quite pointy. So I did bite my lip a few times which made me drink my own blood.”
‘Female First UK’ further states that the actor previously told The Sun newspaper he decided to wear the fangs as much as possible so he could get used to speaking with them in.
He explained: “I was trying to give the character an eloquent and elegant voice that was pretty hard to do with all the ceramic material in my mouth. But I got used to it by taking them home, leaving them in when I was in my hotel room.”(PTI)
