Iím sure Jaimie Alexander wishes she had the same strength and durability as her Thor: The Dark World character, the Asgardian warrior Lady Sif. The actress suffered a pretty scary-sounding injury on the rainy London set after slipping and falling.
Details of the injury were scarce until Alexanderís publicist Craig Schneider revealed the nature of it. Word initially broke out via Twitter which put the health of the actress at question. Thankfully, she seems to be doing okay and recovering quickly.
This will not delay the Thor sequel since shooting had to work around the inclement weather anyway. Itís unclear whether or not director Alan Taylor will continue using real world sets going forward after this mishap but it will certainly be in the back of his mind.
Comic book fans are breathing a sigh of relief also since Lady Sif will likely play a bigger role in future movies. She is known as being a tough warrior and lover of Thor which may put her at odds with Jane Foster whoís played by Natalie Portman. Thor: The Dark World is scheduled for a November 8th, 2013 release.
