Woody Harrelson recalls his 'dark' prank

Woody Harrelson played a "dark" prank on the cast of 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2'.

The 54-year-old actor - who starred alongside the likes of Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth in the new movie - has recalled one particularly mischievous trick he played on his co-stars.

The American actor said: "I am one of those guys who does sometimes like to make people laugh. I did one prank on April Fools' Day where I got our make-up artist to come over to my house and make my face look like I'd been in a bad bike wreck and skidded, blood everywhere.

"I rang [director] Francis Lawrence as I was supposed to film the next day and asked him what I should do. He said, 'First, you need to get to the hospital!'. Then I called Liam and told him to come to the hospital to pick me up, but I made the name up and of course there was no such place.

"That was a dark one, it played on people's sympathies. Nothing good about it, but..."

Meanwhile, Woody also revealed he relished the on-set "shenanigans and playfulness" with his co-stars.

He told the Independent newspaper: "That could be a separate movie on its own, all the shenanigans and playfulness. It's a mad group."
