Planet of the Apes star Felton runs from real-life baboon attack

The British actor, who ironically played a bitter ape warden in 2011 movie Rise of the Planet of the Apes, is on location shooting new movie Labyrinth and he decided to make the most of a day off by taking a safari trip.

But he got a little too close to the local wildlife upon returning to his hotel suite, when a baboon decided to join him.

In a series of posts on, he writes, “went on safari today, had an amazing time observing the animals of africa… also nearly got ravaged to death by a baboon who jumped from my roof to the balcony whilst i was reading a script outside! (I) legged it (ran) inside.”
