UNDERWORLD star Scott Speedman took his werewolf character so seriously he inadvertently injured a stuntman with his prosthetic paws.

The hunky actor is topping the American box office opposite KATE BECKINSALE in the vampires versus werewolves film after giving his all in the shoot - much to the stuntman's distress.

He recalls, "It was my first day of training and I was doing a punch backward. I guess I came around too fast, and he didn't get out of the way.

"I shattered his nose. They didn't even tell me until the movie was almost done.

"But what can you do, man? My punches were swift!"
