Here’s one celebrity who looks like he could be on crutches – this time injured in the line of duty.
Bond star Daniel Craig underwent knee surgery described as a “minor procedure” during the Easter break.
The 47-year-old was injured filming the latest movie “Spectre” in Mexico, but the operation itself is believed to have been carried out in New York.
Craig is expected to be back in action on 22 April.
It forces me to wonder: could art ever imitate life?
I can’t really imagine James Bond – whoever plays him on the big screen – being side-lined with anything as prosaic as a leg injury.
So does that mean poor old Daniel Craig is just a tad accident prone?
He has apparently accrued a series of minor injuries on the sets of 007 films.
During the filming of “Quantum of Solace”, he was hospitalised twice – once for slicing off a finger tip and another time for a facial cut that needed eight stitches.
He was also rumoured to have injured his wrist whilst filming “Skyfall.”
Anyway, I’m wishing him a speedy recovery from his current predicament!
Can you imagine all the palaver over Health & Safety on the Bond sets?
I daren’t even think about how much paper-work goes into the Risk Assessment forms for the filming!
Have a look at the Spectre trailer here – how many opportunities for injury can you spot?
