Sullivan Stapleton - Actor Sullivan Stapleton Injured In Thailand

Australian actor Sullivan Stapleton is recovering after he was injured in Thailand.

The 300: Rise of an Empire star has been in the country shooting U.S. Tv series Strike Back and was hurt in an accident during his time off.

No further details about his injuries or the incident have been released, but a representative insists the actor is on the mend, saying, "Following the accident in Thailand, Sullivan is resting comfortably and on his way to a full recovery. We appreciate all of the well-wishes and support."

However, Stapleton's injury has prompted Tv bosses behind Strike Back to put filming on hiatus until the star recovers.

A statement from Cinemax, the firm behind the series, reads, "After an off-set accident involving Sullivan Stapleton, there has been a change in the production schedule. Following completion of shooting in Thailand, production in Hungary will be on hiatus to allow him time to recover. We plan on resuming production in the fall... (We) all join in wishing Sullivan a full and speedy recovery."

It is not known how the injury will affect Stapleton's commitments to promote the upcoming 300 sequel.
