The show’s filming into chaos after hurting his leg on an assault course — involving swinging axes

Filming of the hit Netflix show’s second series has been suspended, with its production already behind schedule due to the pandemic.

But the actor is back into exercising after taking time to recover and shared pics from a run he completed.

Cavill posted a sweaty selfie of himself in some woods wearing a camo blue face mask and zip-up long sleeve training top.


His usually styled hair fell loosely around his head, showing of his natural curls.

"We are in lockdown here the UK so I'm using my once a day outdoor exercise to go for my first jog since my hamstring injury! (More on that another time)," Cavill wrote on Instagram.

"It wasn't fast, and it certainly was far, but it has been a major step in my recovery, and my first step to getting back into the groove after a Christmas that may have involved more than a few cups of mulled wine, and an exceptionally fat Turkey."

His fans rejoiced he was back in action and congratulated him on is recovery.

"Glad you’re feeling better Henry. Stay strong and stay safe Witcher," wrote one Instagram user.

Another added: "Good effort mate."

And a third said: "Good luck with your recovery 👍"

Cavill, 37, had been 20ft high in trees and on a safety harness at Arborfield Studios, Berks, where the show is filmed.

A source said: “The filming has been hit because of what happened to Henry. He was on an assault course and injured his leg.

“He just suddenly pulled up and was clearly in a lot of pain. It wasn’t clear if an object had hit his leg or it was some sort of hamstring or muscle injury.

“It wasn’t bad enough to need an ambulance but it’s messed up the filming schedule as he can’t walk properly.

“He has to wear heavy armour in the scenes and he just wouldn’t be able to do it with his leg injury.’’

Last month Cavill posted on his Instagram page: “Thank you for hosting all of us on season 2 of The Witcher. Hopefully I shall return to your hills, dales and fells soon. Stay strong and stay safe, my friends.’’
