In a recent interview with Bryan Dattilo in Australia's Soap World magazine, Bryan reveals how he spent his time while being off-canvas from his role as Lucas Horton on Days of Our Lives earlier this year.
"I went on a hunting trip to Tennessee with my older brother Brent and accidentally (hit) myself in the forehead (with a gun). I was using a 12 gauge shotgun and got too close to the scope, right when I pulled the trigger (it hit me) and I had to get 12 stitches."
Bryan goes on to reveal that, although not a serious injury, it did take a few months for his scar to heal properly and that it requires plastic surgery to be removed.
Until then, if you look closely while Bryan is onscreen, you might just be able to see a hockey stick shaped scar on his forehead, currently being covered up with makeup.
