'Dracula Untold' actor, Luke Evans pierced his lips whilst filming with a large set of fangs

Luke Evans pierced his lip with his prosthetic fangs whilst filming 'Dracula Untold'.

The 35-year-old actor revealed that he repeatedly injured his mouth on the set of his new movie, after his vampire fangs pierced through his lip.

Talking about the painful incident on 'Good Morning Britain' today (06.10.14), Luke said: "The ones in the film are much, much bigger [than my own] - I had two different sets, the really long ones, that they would have for just biting moments, and then the ones I could talk and do action with but [they] still pierced my lip quite a few times, horrible!

"I'm fighting with [the fangs] and sword fighting and I just kept piercing my lip all the time - it wasn't very good."

The film - which also stars Dominic Cooper - is a fictional account of the life of Vlad the Impaler and his transformation into vampire Count Dracula.

In this Dracula origin story, Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia (Evans), is a warrior and a family man, who sells his soul to protect his people from the Turkish hordes. There's good work from Evans and Gadon and a show-stopping performance from Dance (under layers of prosthetics), but overall it's po-faced and humourless.
