Kaya Scodelario dislocated her shoulder during Pirates shoot

Actress Kaya Scodelario had to wear a sling in between takes on the new Pirates Of The Caribbean film after dislocating her shoulder on set.
The Maze Runner star, who plays Carina Smyth in the new Johnny Depp film, didn’t want to hold up filming and so acted through the pain after falling awkwardly in an action scene on board Captain Jack Sparrow’s fictional ship the Black Pearl.
“Sometimes that happens on set,” she tells Latino Review. “We’d been there for so long, and people wanted to go home and see their families. I don’t want to hold up filming anymore. So I went to the hospital quickly, had some morphine, and was back on set.
“I had to wear a sling between takes and between scenes, but it worked out OK.”
Meanwhile, Scodelario admits she will always be indebted to her Maze Runner stars for helping her land the role of a lifetime opposite her acting heroes Depp, Javier Bardem, and Geoffrey Rush in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
“I heard about it a few years ago, but I hadn’t decided what they wanted to do with the character yet,” she explains. “I think she (Carina) was two characters at the time. It came back around a few years later, and I did a self-tape (audition). I was shooting the second Maze Runner movie at the time, so I had the boys help me do the audition and play all the different parts in the scene. Thomas Brady played Jack Sparrow, which was quite cool. They’re (Maze Runner castmates) all a part of it.”
