“Spider-Man” claims another victim: The actress who plays the lead villain in the $70 million Broadway show was injured last week and is sidelined for two weeks.
T.V. Carpio, who plays Arachne, was hurt “during an onstage battle scene with a fellow actor,” spokesman Rick Miramontez said.
He would not detail the extent of her injuries. Published reports, however, claim she hurt her neck or suffered whiplash.
She is the show’s fifth actor to be injured onstage. Stuntman Christopher Tierney sustained the most serious injuries of all when he plummeted 30 feet in front of audiences in December and had to be hospitalized for a skull fracture and cracked vertebrae.
Carpio took over the role in December after Natalie Mendoza quit the show following an onstage concussion.
