London (ANI): Actress Katie Holmes narrowly escaped a serious accident when the car she was sitting in for a movie scene nearly caught fire. The BMW's bonnet started emitting black smoke moments after the 30-year-old actress started filming for her upcoming horror flick Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark.
The crew rushed into action and removed a smouldering battery. Katie and husband Tom Cruise's daughter Suri, two, were by that time in her trailer on location near Melbourne, Australia. "It's dreadful to think how serious it could have been," the Sun quoted an insider as saying.
