Is this a dagger I see before me?

Well, yes frankly. I suppose it's a bit more understandable than the cop with the magnum on another thread :)

An actor slit his throat on stage when the prop knife for his suicide scene turned out to be a real one.

Daniel Hoevels, 30, slumped over with blood pouring from his neck while the audience broke into applause at the "special effect".
Love the audience reaction but the chap is frankly an amatuer compared to a true professional like Tommy Cooper who took it to a whole new level.

That's a bit of an over-reaction to not getting a BAFTA.

Don't actors get taught about this sort of thing in Luvvie Basic? What the theatre needs is for acting to be taken over by HMF.

Proper drills, that's what they need....
Done in an Inspector Barnaby years ago (Death of a Hollow Man); someone's obviously been reading their crime fiction.
