Stephen Amell is having a hard time staying on the set of his new Starz series, this time due to a stunt gone wrong.
TV Line reported on Oct. 30 that the actor injured his back on the set of the wrestling series "Heels," but the full extent of the injury isn't known.
"While performing a stunt on the set of 'Heels' this week, Stephen Amell sustained an injury to his back," Starz said in a statement. "Following a medical evaluation, he is now resting and recovering at home in anticipation of his return to set. Production continues as Stephen recuperates."
Producers for the show said all safety protocols were being followed at the time of the on-set stunt.
The accident comes not long after Stephen revealed he lost 15 pounds after testing positive for COVID-19, which kept him away from "Heels."
On the "Inside of You" podcast, Stephen said he thought his positive test "destroyed" the Starz series.
"I'm No. 1 on the call sheet and I work every day more or less," he said. "I'm in my head going, 'S - - t, they're going to have to shut down the production. We're not yet done with the first block of two episodes. Did I just ruin this?' "
Stephen, 39, said he suffered from loss of appetite, chills, dizziness and a plugged ear. His focus, though, was often on work.
"My anxiety came from the idea that I would be letting hundreds of people down," he said. "Not everyone has the luxury of taking two weeks off. In fact, most people don't. We are in the midst of a global pandemic and times are tough for a lot of people."
