Halle Berry Has Eye Mishap on Set

April 10, 2002

LONDON (AP) _ Halle Berry suffered an inflamed eye in an accident on the set of the latest James Bond film, the producers said Wednesday.

The wind blew dust into Berry’s eye while she was filming an action sequence in Spain on Saturday, producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said in London.

``As a precautionary measure, the production sought medical attention for what was a slight inflammation,″ they said in a statement. ``We are happy to report that Ms. Berry suffered no lasting ill effects and returned to work immediately.″

The producers denied news reports that the 33-year-old actress had been hurt by debris from a smoke grenade.

Berry, who won a best-actress Oscar last month for her role in ``Monster’s Ball,″ plays a sultry Bond girl opposite Pierce Brosnan’s Agent 007 in the 20th Bond film, ``Die Another Day.″

Britain’s Press Association news agency reported that Berry was treated in a hospital in Cadiz, southern Spain, by Dr. Antonio Fernandez.

``It could have been much more serious. She has been quite lucky, in fact,″ the agency quoted Fernandez as saying.

In February, Brosnan injured his knee while filming a stunt for the movie.

``Die Another Day″ is scheduled for release in Britain and the United States on Nov. 22.
