Robson Green feared he was being attacked by a killer panther while filming scenes for his new ITV1 show 'Joe Maddison's War'
Robson Green thought he was being attacked by a panther on the set of his new drama.
The actor - who appears in new ITV1 show 'Joe Maddison's War' later in the month - admitted he was initially terrified when he heard a growl in the bushes while filming on the Isle of Man, but later realised the feisty feline was just a pet cat.
He explained: "I was filming at night with my driver on the Isle of Man and I thought I heard a growl in the bushes. There had been reports of a panther on the loose and suddenly this thing jumped out at me. I screamed, threw my driver to the ground and ran to a nearby cottage, locking the door behind me.
"My poor driver was shouting for me to let him in but I was too scared. It later turned out to be someone's little pet Manx cat. Oh how we laughed afterwards!"
The star also admitted while his 'Extreme Fishing' show doesn't sound very sexy, it is "hardcore" behind the scenes.
Robson added to Reveal magazine: "It's hardcore and has an incredibly dashing and charismatic presenter! I get to go to some extraordinary locations and meet some wonderful people. I wouldn't say it's rock and roll, but it's high octane and very moving in some places."
