Angela Bassett visited The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, where she revealed a frightening side effect of shooting multiple days on the Warrior Falls set of Black Panther. It was so bad, in fact, that one star found himself in the emergency room.

The film was shot primarily in Atlanta, with the waterfall set outdoors. Bassett said that after a couple of days all the actors started having eye problems.

They thought is was a result of chlorine in the water, but production claimed that the pH balance was perfect. Ultimately, they realized that all the actors were getting sunburned eyes.

Bassett said it was particularly hard on David Kaluuya. “He had to go to the emergency room.” she said. “You know, blood on the pillow. I mean, it was just the worst.”

Everyone on set was then ordered to wear sunglasses. Every time director Ryan Coogler yelled “Cut!” the entire cast would put their shades on.

The Late Show With Stephen Colbert airs weeknights at 11:35 on CBS.
