Social media footage taken at Brazil’s CCXP 2023 on Sunday shows Pugh standing alongside her Dune: Part Two co-stars—Timothée Chalamet, Austin Butler and Zendaya, along with writer-director Denis Villeneuve—for a panel discussion talking about the sequel of the film at the Comic-Con event.
As the gang huddle together for photos, an unidentified object hurled from the direction of the audience strikes her in the face, narrowly missing her eye. Pugh can be seen reacting, grimacing and saying something in surprise. She winces, and reaches to grab the unidentified object. Her co-stars, who also appear in complete shock, come to her aid.
Pugh’s condition is unclear, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The incident is just another in a long list of celebrities becoming targets onstage in a disturbing trend which sees concert attendees hurling all types of objects, from phones (Bebe Rexha was seriously injured) to their mother’s ashes. Pop star Pink was, perhaps unsurprisingly, shocked when she received the latter earlier this year.
