  • Jared Padalecki has a tough lucky when it comes to stunts. While filming Season 2 Episode 3, Jared’s character Sam is battling vampires in which he has to fall backward, but he ends up breaking a bone in his hand. Jared didn’t even realize that he broke his hand until he got the hand x-rayed. In the episode ‘Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things’, Sam can be seen without a cast as it was due to continuity. There is a scene where he is carrying a shovel, it is in order to keep his arm stable. The writers included the zombie attack to explain the broken hand injury. He kept on filming the episodes and went on to have a surgery in midst of shooting. However, this wasn’t the only injury that Jared sustained. In Season 10, Jared can be seen wearing a cast on his shoulder. It was because Jared dislocated his shoulder while messing around with Osric Chau who played Kevin Tran. The writers again came up with a logical explanation for the cast.
