MTV recently caught up with Jaimie Alexander while she was doing press rounds for The Last Stand. During the interview she talked about, for the first time, her horrific injury she sustained on the set of Thor: The Dark World, revealing that she is just now getting back close to normal. You can check out the chat in the video below where she also talks, again, about the darker tone that Alan Taylor is setting for Thor's second solo outing.



On Her Injury:

"I injured my self pretty bad. I actually haven't talked about this on camera yet. I herniated a disk in my Thoracic spine, dislocated my left shoulder, tore my right Rhomboid, and chipped eleven vertebra. I slipped and fell down something very high, I hurt my self pretty badly and it scared me. I knew when I couldn't get off the ground I was in big trouble. Then, I was okay, but in a lot of pain. The next morning I got in a car to go to the hospital, and I sat in the car and compressed my spine a little bit, and went paralyzed in my right leg and my right hand. So I was in the hospital for a week. But, it was a thing where it was just a swelling thing. Once the swelling went down I was good to go. I did physical rehab for a month, then went back and did some more fight sequences."


On The Movie:

It's a different vibe and a different tone. I think it's a bit darker. We explore more of the viking aspect of things. We explore a few different realms. You learn more about what life is like in Asgard. People just looking awesome, tall, kicking butt, stabbing a few people."


We all knew she had taken a pretty nasty spill, but I don't think that anyone knew exactly how bad it was until she talked about it. However, it is good to know that she is doing better. You can see Alexander kicking butt as Sif when Thor: The Dark World opens on November 8th.

Pretty crazy when all I heard at the start of the season was that they were two of the quarterbacks whose teams had a good chance at getting to the Super Bowl.

Very true I was surprised they fired him, wouldn't be surprised if Garret got the boot too.

Jaimie Alexander's durability is level four.
Five points if you can explain what this means.

I love this girl even more now , bad ass, perfect woman to be Sif.
StephenStrange - 1/9/2013, 10:52 AM
She rocks. She is so perfect as Sif.
It really sucks that she got hurt and missed some filming, because one of the many things I am looking forward to in Thor 2 is moar Sif!!
SupermanReturns2 - 1/9/2013, 11:15 AM
She is so lucky and blessed! That could have been the end, with the results she faced.
TheBeard - 1/9/2013, 11:49 AM
I say GOD-DAMN!
Durf - 1/9/2013, 12:18 PM
Shit, that's [frick]ing brutal! Glad she's ok. Shows that she's a total [frick]ing badass though!

AcidicHeart: Are you referring to the stats off of the old Marvel trading cards? The various stats ranged from 0 to 7.

The stats were: Strength, Speed, Agility, Stamina, Durability, and Intelligence.

A rating of 4, as you suggested for Ms Alexander, is considered Enhanced Human (somewhat difficult to permanently injure). That puts her ahead of Spider Man, who had a durability rating of 3.

FIVE POINTS AWARDED!

Wow! I didn't think her injuries were that serious. I'm glad she fully recovered! That is really scary stuff.

Jaimie Alexander is bad ass. She is Lady Sif!
