The Terrifying Medical Condition Elizabeth Olsen Faced While Filming A Movie – Nicki Swift
While filming 2017’s “Wind River” in Utah, Elizabeth Olsen developed a medical condition called snow blindness that left her eyes sunburned and bloodshot (via DailyMotion). The “WandaVision” actor appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” in 2016 and explained that he was not completely blind, but due to filming in snowy mountains at an altitude of 10,000 to 11,000 feet, he did not protect his eyes as he should. He explained that he thought he was fine and wanted to enjoy the sun while filming in the cold environment and refused to use an umbrella or goggles when they were offered. “He had such bloodshot eyes that he cried continuously,” Olsen said.
Olsen also spoke with ScreenRant in August 2017 once “Wind River” was finally released and he spoke again about the experience. “I didn’t actually go blind, but that’s how everyone was, that’s what snow blindness is,” she said. He then explained that “the ice is just a reflector” of the sun “straight into the eyes.” Without proper protection, you too could develop bloody eyes like Olsen’s. Jeremy Renner, his co-star in this and other projects, told ScreenRant that despite the bitter cold, filming in such weather is “a beautiful thing.” “It’s a kind of unapologetic storytelling, raw and truthful. The elements, as well as the writing, work together.”
