She had just wrapped up a late-night shoot in Savannah, Georgia – “the last scene of the movie” – when she was “hit in the face with the butt of a gun.”

“It was a complete accident and it was a big shock,” Wilson continued, “but luckily I’m doing very well.”

In a statement to members last month, the Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) explained the nature of the interim agreement system that gives the green light to projects such as bride hard to keep filming.

“The interim agreement gives many of our journeyman artists and crews the ability to pay their rent and support their families. This approach preserves our strength, solidarity and upper hand with the AMPTP until they back down on the deal we deserve,” the guild said.

“The interim agreement is not a waiver. To be clear, it is a contract that contains all the terms and conditions for producers who wish to employ our members for their specific independent productions.”

The statement continued: “This interim agreement has been entered into for a number of reasons, all aimed at protecting the interests of our members, helping them navigate the strike successfully and showing the AMPTP that other producers are ready to work with our members under these agreements.” Conditions.”

On July 14, the actors’ union joined the Writers Guild of America (WGA) in the fight for a fairer deal.

The move effectively paralyzed Hollywood and is the first time since 1960 that both actors and writers have joined in a demonstration against film and television production companies.
