Henry Cavill has confirmed he sustained an injury while filming The Witcher, sharing a picture of his daily outdoor workout while in lockdown in the UK.
In December last year, it was reported that Henry, 37, had suffered a leg injury while filming season two of the fantasy series, causing filming to be suspended.
A day later, it emerged that filming had been able to resume, with lead Henry, who plays deadly hunter Geralt of Rivia, sidelined as he recovered.
In his most recent Instagram post, the Man of Steel star shared an update on his condition, telling his 14.8 million followers that he is only now ‘getting back into the groove’ of recovery.
The actor posted a selfie taken on what appears to be a forest pathway, his face partially covered with a camo-patterned mask.
‘We are in lockdown here [in] the UK so I’m using my once a day outdoor exercise to go for my first jog since my hamstring injury! (More on that another time),’ he wrote in the caption.
‘It wasn’t fast, and it certainly was far, but it has been a major step in my recovery, and my first step to getting back into the groove after a Christmas that may have involved more than a few cups of mulled wine, and an exceptionally fat Turkey.’
Among the hashtags he added at the end, he included one that read: ‘#WorkingOffTheChristmasCheers.’
Several Instagram users wished Henry well on his road to recovery.
‘Good effort mate,’ wrote former Royal Marine and Invictus Games athlete Mark Ormrod MBE.
‘Glad you’re feeling better Henry. Stay strong and stay safe Witcher,’ a fan commented, while another said: ‘Such an inspiration to keep going. Keep healing!’
In late December, Netflix shared a sneak peek at the script for The Witcher season two on Twitter, hinting at the introduction of a threatening new monster.
The scene features a mysterious creature snatching a man and his wife away, as Geralt states: ‘I was meant to end up alone, wasn’t I? So I would finally begin to be afraid?’
Consider our curiosity piqued.
The Witcher season one is available to watch on Netflix.
