Following the release of Saw X, Tobin Bell has shared the sad reality of his experience while filming the first Saw movie almost two decades ago.

In a video shared to the franchise's official X account, we are given a tour of the bathroom 'where it all began' by none other than the Jigsaw killer himself, Tobin Bell.

The bathroom was the iconic setting for much of the first Saw movie, which was released in 2004. It follows Jigsaw's latest victims, who awaken in a large, pretty disgusting bathroom, with one being ordered to kill the other to save his family.

In the recent clip, Bell reminisces about what filming the first movie was like.

If your memories are a little fuzzy, he pretty much spends the entire film lying on the ground in a pool of blood.

He said: "For most of that film, I lay right here on my face, with only a 357. Magnum in one hand, and a tape recorder in the other, and half of my head blown off.”

But, spoiler alert: at the end of the film, it is revealed that he was not only alive the whole time, but also responsible for imprisoning the two men in the first place.

Bell then goes on to speak about what it was like wearing his character's gruesome makeup and shares a rather sad tale from on set.

“No one wanted to have lunch with me, on any day I would sit down, I was so ugly looking and covered with blood, so I would eat alone in my dressing room,” he shared.

It's a surprisingly wholesome story to come from the set of one of the most gruesome film franchises in history and, in stark contrast to his serial killer character, Bell seems like an absolute sweetheart.

People have since take to X to express their heartbreak after hearing the story.

One person wrote: "Just remembered no one wanted to eat lunch with tobin during the first movie and started crying."

"MY F**KING HEART JUST GOT RIPPED OUT WDYM," said another.

And a third added: "This information has single handedly ruined my day this man deserves the WORLD."

The latest movie in the Saw franchise is in cinemas worldwide now.

Set between the events of the first and second films, Saw X sees a desperate John (Jigsaw) travel to Mexico in the hope that an experimental medical procedure will cure his cancer, only to discover that the operation is a scam.

The infamous killer then returns to his work, turning the tables on the con artists in a series of deranged and, of course, gruesome traps.
