DOOL star Judi Evans admits co-star ‘knocked her out cold’

In her recent Instagram post, Judi shared: “#FunFactFriday Who wants some behind the scenes stories?! Here’s one from #AnotherWorld. ” The video shows Tom getting into a scrap with Jamie and punching him, but Judi recalls the real story behind a previous take.

In the post she explains that on the first take, Tom accidentally “clocked her” and hit her, knocking her out cold on the floor. You’ll notice that in the actual take that aired she jumps back extra far when Tom is about to confront Jamie, as she didn’t want another KO! Tom felt awful for accidentally clipping Judi and when she woke up, he was crying over her. Evans reminds followers that “it was a total accident!” as the “blocking was a little tight on that Brooklyn set.”
