An actress who starred in a Leonardo DiCaprio horror flick was subjected to a real life kidnapping ordeal.

Daisy McCrackin and her actor boyfriend, Joseph Capone, were both grabbed by a gang on May 3 in Los Angeles.

McCrackin – who starred in DiCaprio's produced Delerium – suffered the ordeal after the suspects entered her home and pistol whipped Capone.

The suspects then placed black hoods over the victims' heads and drove them to a house in Compton where they stripped Capone naked and held him without food in a bathtub for 30 hours.

The shocking details were revealed in a release from the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office who announced three people have been charged with 17 felony counts, including kidnapping, assault with a firearm, grand theft, mayhem, conspiracy and possession for sale of a controlled substance, methamphetamine.

The kidnappers then took McCrackin's car and drove her around to various banks demanding she pay $10,000 for her boyfriend's release.

The distraught actress eventually wrote the gang a check and the money was transferred from her account.

However, she was able to escape from them and contacted police, who located the three people and arrested them.

Her boyfriend suffered injuries to his body and head during the ordeal – detectives are still investigating the case.

If found guilty the suspects could face life sentences for their roles in the kidnap and assault.
