Spanish actress SARA CASANOVAS is recovering after an obsessed fan attempted to kill her with a crossbow and arrow.
The thespian was leaving a Madrid, Spain theatre after a performance of Night of The Iguana on Sunday night (07Jun09) when the German fan opened fire.
He managed to shoot one misdirected arrow, which missed the actress and struck a bystander, before he was wrestled to the ground.
The 25-year-old star was taken to a nearby hospital after suffering a panic attack.
The 39-year-old attacker took aim at Casanovas because she told him she wanted nothing to do with him after he started sending her creepy love letters.
