On a red carpet interview Ralph Ineson has said that he has been hospitalized three times by a goat during the filming of the movie The Witch. The Creators of this movie does use real elements rather than CGI elements for authentic horror experience, so something like that was quite inevitable given by the fact the goat was 4 stones heavier than him. In fact, Ineson says that the script of The witch was so intense that he had to put it down midway while reading it as he felt highly overwhelmed by it. He took a break and sat down with his family and watched television to cool off after reading some of the script just to continue it later in a calmer state of mind. It’s a rare experience for any actor to be blown away by the script so much that they needed to take a break.
