Annabelle Wallis got caught in a gunfight in Brazil.

The 33-year-old actress was travelling alone in the South American country aged 17 when shots broke out in a nearby favela and she had to hide on the floor of her cab in order to stay out of danger.

The 'Mummy' actress had gone to visit friends but the timing was dreadful as it coincided with a local drug baron's two-day reign of terror.

Speaking to Virgin Atlantic's in-flight magazine, Vera, she said: ''I have far more bravery than common sense.''

But the 'Peaky Blinders' star believes she's very strong and capable of coping with any situation.

She added: ''I've seen a lot in my life. I've travelled alone through Africa and South America. I'm definitely a capable female.

''One of my friends once told me, 'If there was an Armageddon, you would get me out.' You can throw anything at me.''

Meanwhile, it was claimed last month that Annabelle has rekindled her romance with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.

The pair dated for almost two years before their split in June, but are determined to make things work this time around.

A source said: ''Their crazy work schedules make it difficult to see each other sometimes and they drifted apart. But recently they have been making more of an effort and have decided to give things another shot.

''They have a lot of history together and don't want to throw everything away. There are just a few more months left on Coldplay's tour and then they will be able to spend more time together and work around Annabelle's schedule.''
