Kate Beckinsale was rushed to a hospital after collapsing on the set of her new TV show The Widow in South Africa. The actress, who was pictured arriving in Cape Town to film scenes for the Amazon series back in January 2018, told the Daily Mail that the stifling heat took its toll on her. “It was incredibly hot – so hot that I ended up getting taken to the hospital one day for passing out,” she recalled. “I just keeled over into this very nice, huge actor, which was lucky. Friend for life!” Kate didn’t name the actor she fell into, but she co-stars in the series with Babs Olusanmokun, Jacky Ido and Matthew Gravelle. Charles Dance and Alex Kingston also feature. After recovering following her hospitalization, Kate got back to filming. But when she wasn’t required on set, the star made the most of the local wildlife, and enjoyed going on regular safaris.
