Actor Bryan Cranston suffered pink eye on the set of sci-fi remake Total Recall because the tepid water he and co-star Colin Farrell had to splash around in during one fight scene served as a "petrie dish" for bacteria.
Crew members thought they were doing the stars a favour by warming up the water for the soaking scene, but Cranston admits he had to seek medical help when he started blinking in pain.
He tells WENN, "We were in this pool of water that was about eight inches deep, splashing around in there and flipping and landing. The people who set that up nicely wanted us to feel more comfortable, so they warmed the water, and the rain that was constantly dropping was warm too. That was very sweet, except for the fact that everybody in the crew had to step in there with their work boots and rain boots.
"They were coming in and out of this pool of water and we're splashing around... Near the end of the day my eyes were so irritated and I thought it was because of the chlorine they must have put in (the water).
"I went in (to the doctor) and asked for eye drops because it felt like sandpaper in my eye, and he said, 'You got pink eye!' I got pink eye in both eyes during that fight and then I had to come back the next day to do the same thing. I had to put in antibiotic drops in my eyes.
"The doctor said to me, 'Have you been around children?... because usually pink eye is contracted by children not washing their hands when they go to the bathroom.' Then I'm remembering... It was everybody's boots going in and out. The warm water became like a petrie dish! Bacteria was leaking like flying fish."
