“I thought I’d break the news to you all, I fell pretty badly on set about a week ago,” Seymour captioned a video. “I’ve got lots of hairline fractures on my kneecap. Got lucky comparatively! In spite of it, I managed to finish the scene and work all week… trying not to hobble. This is acting!” (RELATED: REPORT: Nick Jonas Hospitalized After Sustaining Injury While Filming Secret Project)

“I did apparently smash my kneecap, so it’s really painful, and I’m not allowed to really move it for about two or three weeks,” Seymour said in the video. “But you know what? I’m acting above the kneecap, and I have a wonderful double for below the kneecap!”

“I’ve been taking extra care of my knee,” she wrote alongside a photo of her on crutches. “Rest and patience is the cure! Thankfully ballet has enabled me to almost not limp on set. Although it hurts, it’s getting better everyday! Thank you to everyone who reached out with such kind messages. Keep smiling!”

“Harry Wild” is an Irish mystery thriller that is set to debut in 2022.
