Henry Cavill Confirms Leg Injury Filming The Witcher Season Two
It was reported last month that the 37-year-old had suffered a leg injury while filming the second season of the hugely successful Netflix fantasy show.
The injury was so serious that filming had to stop. Well, without Geralt of Rivia there isn't really a show, is there?
To be fair, they managed to continue filming a day later, just without Cavill present as he recovered from his ailment.
Now, the actor has shared an Instagram post with his 14.8 million followers to update them on his condition.
He says he is now 'getting into the groove' of recovery.
Cavill shared a shot of himself taken on a forest path - keeping himself nice and safe during the UK's third lockdown - while wearing a camouflage patterned face mask.
In the caption, he wrote: "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).
"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."

He added a number of hashtags after his post, but chief among them was #WorkingOffTheChristmasCheers.
We all need a bit of that, Henry. Not all of us are in the kind of shape he is, though.
Obviously, we're not entirely sure when we will see The Witcher season two. Especially with everything that is going on in the world just now.
Further to that, Cavill's injury could push things down the road even further.
At the time, The Sun reported that Cavill's injury was sustained while '20 feet high in trees and on a safety harness' on an assault course that involved 'swinging axes'.
That sounds about right for The Witcher, to be sure.
The source said: "He just suddenly pulled up and was clearly in a lot of pain. It wasn't clear if an object had hit his leg or it was some sort of hamstring or muscle injury,
"It wasn't bad enough to need an ambulance, but it's messed up the filming schedule as he can't walk properly."
The Witcher season two is due to air at some point in 2021.
