How Bad Was Jaimie Alexander’s Injury on the Thor 2 Set?

In September, we learned that Jaimie Alexander had suffered an injury on the London set of Thor: The Dark World, but it wasn’t immediately clear what had happened to her. Back then, she said the following on Twitter:

“Already in recovery mode and my spirits are high, I’ll be back kicking ass as Lady Sif in no time! It can only get better from here on out!… Received great news today! Meds are kicking in. Awesome funny nurses here at the hospital. Physio tomorrow. All good. #HappySif #Thankful”
 
Now, in an interview with the New York Post, Alexander has revealed what happened…
 
“It was raining, it was dark outside, it was like 5 in the morning — and I went down a metal staircase and slipped and slipped a disc in my thoracic spine and chipped 11 of my vertebrae… I knocked my left shoulder out of place and tore my rhomboid on my right side . . . It took me out of filming for a month.”
 
She added that she does “heal really fast. Everyone thinks it’s really funny to tease me about staircases now that I fell down one . . . I’m walking in heels again though, so that’s a good sign.”
 
We’ll see her in action again as Lady Sif when Thor: The Dark World hits theaters on November 8, 2013.
