It is not just the actors who get injured while shooting, as director J.J. Abrams recently revealed that he too once broke his back while trying to save Harrison Ford during the shoot of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens.’

The 49-year-old American director said in a recent interview that once while shooting, there was a hydraulic door that went down and the actor, who’s reprising his role of Han Solo, was pushed down with his ankle twisted at 90 degrees, but he handled it really well, Us Magazine reported.

The sci-fi film and series director-producer explained that the actor was toughing it out and was making jokes, and later when he tried to help lift the door up he felt a kind of pop in his back and got injured.

Abrams also praised Ford stating that he’s a real-life superhero and should have that little Marvel logo above his name everywhere.
