Dwayne Johnson is one of the few Hollywood icons who doesn’t need much of an introduction. Anyone who’s seen a movie in the last decade will have seen him on the screen somewhere. From his days in the WWE as The Rock, to his first movie role, and on to his most recent, everyone knows who Johnson is. What people may not know is that Johnson’s first movie role was a tough one, and not just because it was his first movie role. That’s because when Dwayne Johnson filmed The Mummy Returns, he had both food poisoning and heatstroke.

The Mummy Returns was the sequel to the audience favorite The Mummy, which starred Brendan Fraser. The Mummy Returns picked up eight years after the events in the original movie. Rick O’Connell, played by Fraser, had married Evelyn (Rachel Weisz), and they had a son named Alex. When Alex messed with an ancient Egyptian artifact, it spurred into motion an adventure that took the family all the way from London to Egypt. They once again faced off against Imhotep, who was played by Arnold Vosloo.
