Actor Robert Vaughn performed all his own action scenes in The Man From U.N.C.L.E. because his stuntman was often too drunk.

The veteran actor was keen to avoid doing his own stunts in the cult 1960s crime-fighting show but he was left with no choice but to shoot the action scenes himself because of his booze-loving double.

Vaughn tells U.K. Tv show Loose Women, "I had stunt people, yes, but he generally wasn't sober, so I had to do them all. I did all the stunts myself."
