The 29-year-old actor plays Jackman’s assistant in the upcoming circus musical The Greatest Showman, and says he has to thank Hugh Jackman for getting him out of a fiery set.

Of the incident, Zac said:

“It started to get late, and some of the pyrotechnics got a little bit too hot. We burst out of the building. It looked great on camera. We didn’t know it at the time, but it was pretty intense.

I watched playback, and Hugh saved me from a burning building.

It later exploded that night. It was a set, but it later burned down.”

The pyrotechnic malfunction caused major damage at the location of Brooklyn Navy Yard in New York, with around 100 firefighters present to combat the huge blaze and struggled to contain it at first.

No one was hurt.
