THOR: THE DARK WORLD: Jaimie Alexander Shares Details About Her Accident On Set

A few months back Jaimie Alexander suffered a severe back injury on the set of Thor: The Dark World. Now the actress shares new details about the horrific incident. Plus a new set video featuring Thor (Chris Hemsworth) battling Malekith (Chris Eccleston).

In September the female action star was badly hurt on the set of Alan Taylor's Thor: The Dark World, in which she plays Lady Sif, Goddess Of War. At the time the only details that were given was that Jaimie slipped on the set while it was raining. Jaimie would later tweet just how serious the incident actually was, "Today I sustained a pretty horrible injury. I'm lucky I'm not paralyzed."

“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. I 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.” - NY Post

Over the past two months the actress has communicated via Twitter that her recovery was going very well, and despite the severity of the injury she assured fans that Sif would not have less screen time in the Thor sequel. To accommodate her injuries the shooting schedule was shuffled around. Jaimie can next be seen in Arnold Schwarzenegger's next action movie, "The Last Stand."

Also, a new set video has surfaced that features more footage from the fight scene involving Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Malekith (Chris Eccleston), the leader of the Dark Elves. This scene was filmed a few days ago at the University of Greenwich.

Get better girl.
SageMode - 11/18/2012, 12:21 PM
She heals real fast? Sounds like an Asgardian to me.
Hero020200 - 11/18/2012, 12:22 PM
Jeez... sounds painful. I won't be able to stop feeling my back now
StormLoganSummers - 11/18/2012, 12:27 PM
Things could have gone terribly for her.
Joe6Pack74 - 11/18/2012, 12:32 PM
Wow that sucks, lucky she was not paralyzed.
Maia87 - 11/18/2012, 12:34 PM
She's Hawt.

Mego - 11/18/2012, 12:40 PM
She doesnt mention if shes still in pain and most likely she is.
rockerdude22 - 11/18/2012, 12:50 PM
Aww, sorry to her that baby girl! Glad you're healing fast! Sounds like you had a pretty bad accident.

I promise that, after you're healed up, we'll have a very special night with each other to celebrate haha

Lightsplasher - 11/18/2012, 12:52 PM
Hopin' she'll be in better health ....
rockerdude22 - 11/18/2012, 12:52 PM
Malekith looks creepy as f*** in that set pic up there haha
thalidomide - 11/18/2012, 12:56 PM
Yup she's an Asgardian.
CreshernThershPlern - 11/18/2012, 1:08 PM
That crew member in the set pic is wearing a Skyfall cap. Wrong movie, mate.
DrDoom - 11/18/2012, 1:08 PM
Asgardians have regenerative healing powers, so this makes sense.

Seirously, glad to see she got better so fast.
werty - 11/18/2012, 1:14 PM
Holy crap she is tough. If I had gone through something like this I would probably stay in the bed for the next few months and barely dare to move anywhere. Much less jet around the world, do photoshoots and film a blockbuster.

Respect Jaimie. You are as tough as a real Asgardian
NostalgicYouth - 11/18/2012, 1:22 PM
@ CreshernThershPlern
Lol maybe he worked on Skyfall.
Funsize - 11/18/2012, 1:23 PM

Tony93 - 11/18/2012, 1:57 PM
@GUNSMITH Holy Crap! ha is that real?!?
SwingsetKnight - 11/18/2012, 1:58 PM
Bloody hell. Every so often something like this comes up and makes me appreciate what actors do a little bit more--usually just when I'm thinking "damn, being a CBM actor would be the best job of all time". She's really tough to pull through that so quickly.

CharlesLord - 11/18/2012, 2:06 PM
jeez. good to hear shes ok. always hate to hear ppl getting seriously hurt or worse on movie sets
thalidomide - 11/18/2012, 2:07 PM


Btw how come the youtube video on this article won't show up on my iCrap?
RexDartEskimoSpy - 11/18/2012, 2:21 PM
It must still hurt like hell when she wakes up in the morning. Somewhere there's a very lucky chiropractor.
113 - 11/18/2012, 2:22 PM
That is definitely a scary injury
TheSoulEater - 11/18/2012, 2:35 PM
What a woman!!!
Wildaniel - 11/18/2012, 2:35 PM
She will be AWESOME in Thor 2!

Giznad - 11/18/2012, 2:41 PM
wasn't she jail bait on It's Always Sunny?
marvel54 - 11/18/2012, 2:57 PM
she is one bad ass chick
gac - 11/18/2012, 2:58 PM
Glad it didn't reduce her screen time!
Supes17 - 11/18/2012, 3:31 PM
She healed that fast?!
Had to be the rope:P

Bruce Wayne you pussy, it took you 5 months to get back in shape LMAO
AztecRainGod - 11/18/2012, 3:33 PM
Thank goodness shes okay. I will rub her back every night for the next two weeks if it helps. =P
Supes17 - 11/18/2012, 3:34 PM
@Shamo: Batman got a lucky break by [frick]ing up Bane's mask.

If you think about it, the GAUNTLETS get him out of trouble at the last second!

BB-Broke Ra's sword with gauntlets, used them to [frick] up the train, and avoided getting his ass stabbed.

TDK-Shot the Joker in the face with the spiked gauntlets, making him drop the detonator.

TDKR- [frick]ed up Bane's mask.

He doesn't need the Batsuit, he does just fine with the blades:P
AztecRainGod - 11/18/2012, 3:36 PM

If they dont cast this chick as Wonderwoman, something is very [frick]iing wrong.
TheManWithBigEars - 11/18/2012, 5:02 PM
She's hot hope she's fine 2 do action; needs 2 b Wonder Woman, speaking of which, guys please check my JL cast!

@ Supes17

I literally just noticed that, the blades cut the pipes not his fists knocking them out
UrbanKnight - 11/18/2012, 7:05 PM
Tough and hott. What a sexy combo. Merry me Jaimie?
