William Moseley and several crew members on the Italian set of The Silent Mountain were in for quite a shock earlier this week—literally!

"I was struck by lightning on the arm and am doing fine now," the actor, known for his role as Peter Pevensie in the Chronicles of Narnia film series, tweeted Tuesday. "It was very traumatic. We [were] just starting to film."

"It came through the roof and struck nine other crew members," Moseley, 25, wrote. "I feel very lucky to be alive. I've learnt a lot from this experience."

"We have two weeks left of filming and I know it will be a great and productive time," he added. "The crew have been wonderful."

He continued: "I am looking forward to all of you seeing the film. I believe it will be very special. Thank you for all of you kind words."

Fortunately, Moseley was back to work quickly. Later in the day Tuesday, he tweeted a picture of himself in what appeared to be a soldier's uniform filming in Italy. "A picture from the location of The Silent Mountain, filming in the Dolomite Mountains," he wrote. "Hope you're all having a good day."

Talk about a freak accident! We're certainly glad he's OK.
