Australian actor Sullivan Stapleton suffered a nasty head injury when he fell out of a tuk-tuk in Thailand and is expected to be out of action for up to six months.
The star was filming TV series Strike Back in the country when he sustained a mystery injury. The shoot was put on hiatus and the actor had to drop out of the publicity tour for his new blockbuster movie 300: Rise of an Empire.
Stapleton has now revealed he fell out of an automatic rickshaw – also known as a tuk-tuk – during a night out and suffered a worrying head injury.
He tells Australia’s Herald Sun, “We’d been out and I fell off the tuk-tuk and my head hit the ground and it was quite serious… a lot more serious than I initially thought.”
Despite the injury, he was more concerned about missing work, saying, “Missing out on the publicity tour (for 300: Rise of an Empire) was definitely disappointing, especially as the film is going so well.”
