LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Eureka star Colin Ferguson never thinks before he stunts.

Ferguson, who plays Sheriff Jack Carter on the hit SyFy series, admits he gets so excited about doing stunts for the show, he often “forgets the ramifications” of getting so physical.

He’s been kicked in the face, hit by a car, and thrown all over the place but gets so attached to the wild tricks, he doesn’t “think things through all the way” in terms of pain until he’s sore later.

Because he takes his stunts on the body, he expects his co- stars to do the same – especially when he’s directing an episode.

Ferguson admits he “relishes” in seeing his co- workers attempt physical stunts so he’s not the only one being tossed around.

He explains, “I have a childish sense of humor when it comes to someone getting hurt. Not seriously injured, just hurt. It tickles me.”

Eureka airs Fridays on SyFy.
