Although left shaken after the incident, James McAvoy was not seriously injured and filming for the upcoming movie resumed later the same day.
Filming on the new "X-Men" movie was halted after James McAvoy was involved in a freak accident on set, according to a U.K. report. The Scottish actor is currently shooting "X-Men: First Class" at the legendary Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, England.
But filming had to be abandoned temporarily after a buggy which was transporting McAvoy between sets on the vast complex crashed, reports Britain's The Sun. The star was left shaken after the incident, but he was not seriously injured and the shoot resumed later the same day.
James McAvoy plays the younger version of Dr. Charles Xavier. He stars alongside the likes of Michael Fassbender, January Jones, Zoe Kravitz, Jennifer Lawrence and Kevin Bacon for the Matthew Vaughn-directed flick.
