Stephen Amell Suffers Back Injury Performing Stunt on 'Heels' Set

Stephen Amell has suffered a back injury on the set of his Starz show Heels, and a rep for the show has released a statement about what happened.

“While performing a stunt on the set of Heels this week, Stephen Amell sustained an injury to his back,” a rep for Starz confirms (via TV Line). “Following a medical evaluation, he is now resting and recovering at home in anticipation of his return to set. Production continues as Stephen recuperates.”

Stephen was apparently attempting a “thoroughly rehearsed stunt” when the injury happened and was given immediate medical attention. A stunt coordinator was also present.

This back injury came just a few days after Stephen revealed he battled Coronavirus and had to take a leave from the show due to that diagnosis.
