Chronicles of Narnia Actress Faints Underwater During SCUBA Lesson

Whoa. Careful now.

Chronicles Of Narnia actress Georgie Henley has revealed how she failed to complete her scuba diving training, after she fainted underwater.

The 15-year-old, who reprises her role as Lucy Pevensie in the latest of the film series, decided to undertake a PADI scuba diving course to help provide her with handy skills for an underwater scene in The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader.

"I couldn't complete my licence 'cause I had a bit of an accident - I fainted underwater," she revealed.

"It was on my birthday as well, which is pretty crazy. I wasn't out for long."

Georgie added: "I was very ill, I had an ear infection and a cold, we'd literally just flown in about two days earlier, so it just meant that I wasn't able to do it, but I will be able to finish it because we learnt half the skills and they did adapt a shot, so I could participate."

And that, folks, is exactly why you don't dive sick.
