Lord of the Rings star Ian McKellen has been seen on the street for the first time since falling off stage during a performance as he continues his rehabilitation.

McKellen was injured in the neck and wrist during the show and spent three nights in hospital. Despite his fighting spirit, the celebrity was forced to take sick leave. Paparazzi photographed him walking. McKellen looked dazed. He tried to hide his neck under his scarf. The photos were published on the Daily Mail website.

“Every actor will tell you that missing a performance, even if it’s not their fault, is somehow embarrassing. None of us want to disappoint our audience. After three nights in hospital, the effects of my fall were analysed and I am now undergoing physiotherapy, doing light exercises and getting plenty of rest at home,” he said.

Let’s remind you that the incident occurred on June 17. McKellen played in a production of William Shakespeare’s work. During the performance, he fell off the stage. The actor was taken away by ambulance. After a while, McKellen’s friend Anthony Hopkins published an archived video of them dancing and having fun together.
