Jaimie Alexander, who plays Thor's strong lady sidekick Sif, suffered a pretty scary injury on Monday in London while she was walking on the set of "Thor: The Dark World."
The 28-year-old actress tweeted:
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.

Later she added more twitter commentary, saying, "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!" And on Tuesday one of her tweets made mention of her expected "speedy recovery" and that she is seeing "another specialist."
Then, to our delight, she added these fun details:
Alexander slipped as she was walking on the set while it was raining, according to her publicist Craig Schneider, who wouldn't reveal the exact nature of her injury. He noted that her injury is not, by any means, putting a halt on the production of "Thor," and noted that it "worked out" since the film was forced to work around the rain anyway, and that they were able to shift the shooting schedule to accommodate Alexander's recovery.
No harm no foul -- to the movie, anyhow.
"Thor: The Dark World" is due in theaters November 8, 2013.
