VIDEO - Jackie Chan remembers how he got a hole in his head in Zagreb

By  Sep 18, 2017

Jackie Chan was a guest at Conan O'Brien show and shared some memories from Zagreb. During the filming of 'Armour of God' in 1986 he got a hole in his head! He was jumping from a wall to a tree branch, but the branch broke.  

- I tried to grab the tree. Yugoslav camerman was holding his camera. If he put down the camera and pushed me a little bit I think I would be safe. But when he saw my hole, he took the camera and run away – Chan explained while the audience laughed.

He said he was lucky because he knew how to fall or the injury could be fatal. But still, he has a memory from Zagreb, because he still has a hole in his head– two fingers wide. He even made Conan O'Brien feel it!

Armour of God was filmed on location in parts of what was then Yugoslavia: Zagreb (Dolac Central Market), Upper town, Trnje (near the then-unfinished building of Croatian Radio Television), Croatia, and Predjama Castle near Postojna, Slovenia. Filming was also undertaken in Graz, Austria, France, Spain and Morocco.
