She may be playing a warrior goddess, but Jaimie Alexander isn’t indestructible in real life. The actress, a.k.a Lady Sif, a.k.a. debatably the most badass part of Thor (and that includes the God of Thunder himself), has suffered a “horrible injury” on the set of Thor: The Dark World, now filming in London. There’s no word on what the injury on question is or what it was caused by (did she try and lift Mjölnir? No, wait, this is real life), but apparently it could have had some very permanent effects, at least judging from a Tweet she posted:
Today I sustained a pretty horrible injury. I’m lucky I’m not paralyzed. Thank you (with all of my heart) to those who’ve looked after me.
Her recovery seems to be going well, with a pair of Tweets from yesterday indicating that a “Speedy recovery [is] taking place!” and that “Meds are kicking in.” So now I’m imagining Sif hopped up on pain meeds, yelling at Thor and the Warriors Three about how she wants to give Loki a buzz cut.
In all seriousness, we’re glad she’s OK and hope that her injury doesn’t keep her from returning to the set to kick some butt. (They could even film some of it for the movie!)
