Quite a while back, there was talk about an injury received by actress Jaimie Alexander on the set of Thor: The Dark World. Now, Jaimie has been talking about the injury and has revealed just how serious it actually was.
Alexander told MTV, “I injured myself pretty bad. I actually haven't talked about this on camera yet. I herniated a disk in my Thoracic spine, dislocated my left shoulder, tore my right Rhomboid, and chipped eleven vertebra. I slipped and fell down something very high, I hurt myself pretty badly and it scared me.”
She added, “I knew when I couldn't get off the ground I was in big trouble. Then, I was okay, but in a lot of pain. The next morning I got in a car to go to the hospital, and I sat in the car and compressed my spine a little bit, and went paralyzed in my right leg and my right hand.”
Jaimie continued, “So I was in the hospital for a week. But, it was a thing where it was just a swelling thing. Once the swelling went down I was good to go. I did physical rehab for a month, then went back and did some more fight sequences.”
You can see Jaimie Alexander as Sif, starring alongside Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Tom Hiddleston as Loki, in Thor: The Dark World, which is set to be released on October 30 in the UK and November 8 in the US.
