Joanna Lumley recalls being ambushed in Haiti while filming new TV documentary

Fortunately for the team, the bandits let them pass unscathed but Joanna didn’t flee the country following the ordeal.

“I’m not really an afraid kind of person,” she said.

“If you look timid, people and animals pick it up very fast.

“In Haiti, people are so poor and living in such squalor, but if you say ‘Bonjour’ and put your hand out, you’ve made friends immediately.”
