Tyler Posey just couldn’t contain his excitement at San Diego Comic-Con 2014. When he was introduced for the “Teen Wolf” panel, the actor cartwheeled onto the stage and broke his toe. Watch the video of the panel below to see Posey’s toe-breaking cartwheel (He is introduced around the 2:25 mark).
It looks like Posey isn’t as athletic as his character Scott McCall. Around 3:40, Tyler tells the audience, “I think I broke my toe on that cartwheel.”
Indeed, Posey injured himself during the stunt.
"I immediately knew I broke it," Posey told E! Online. "It's my first broken toe I've ever had."
Posey displayed his scotch tape cast during interviews the next day and showed off the toe on Instagram (warning: it's kind of gross).
He might not have Scott McCall’s healing powers, but Posey still continued with the “Teen Wolf” Comic-Con panel and a full weekend of press interviews despite the pain. Some of his “Teen Wolf” cast members didn’t even realize how badly Posey had injured himself.
“I didn’t even know about it until this morning,” co-star Holland Roden said. “I was like, ‘What do you mean you did a cartwheel?’ That’s how out of it I was. I was so far [on the other end of table] like on the East Coast and that was the West Coast that I could not see what was happening.”
Hopefully their characters are more alert on the next episode of “Teen Wolf.” They debuted a new trailer for the second half of Season 4 that made it seem as if everyone was in danger.
“Teen Wolf” airs Mondays at 10 p.m. EDT on MTV.
