Nina Dobrev Was Literally Set On Fire For 'Flatliners'

You can’t see us, but we’re making the same face that Nina Dobrev is in this picture after learning that she was really set on fire for it.

The actress spoke to EW about the movie and how she prepared for this particular scene.

“Well, first of all, your wardrobe gets fireproofed, which is a certain chemical that can’t really burn. They dip your clothes in it and let that dry. And then they put this jelly stuff all over your skin and underneath,” she explains.

“They put gas on your arm — well, they did on my arm — and then they come at me with a blowtorch, right before they call ‘Action.’”

Nina adds, “They call ‘Action,’ they light my arm on fire, I have to act like I’m on fire — which I am — and react to the scariness of it, which wasn’t too hard.”

We’d be screaming out heads off!

“After a few seconds, as it moves up my arm, they call cut, and they run in with fire extinguishers,” Nina shares. “So it goes from hot to cold very, very quickly. … We did that…five or six times at least? You also have to get it from different angles.”

But fire isn’t all Nina had to go through — there’s also being shocked back to life, too.

Flatliners hits theaters in September.
