What Happened To Henry Cavill While Filming?

But as the video continued, fans got to know that the injury was bad but could have been worse. He added, “Back in December, I injured myself running on set. I was sprinting. And while sprinting, the hamstring tore. It turned out to be a Grade 2B tear, which means it was the bicep part of the hamstring, which is the middle part of the muscle. And it was a severe tear. My physiotherapist told me that, if the tear was any more severe, it would have been a rupture, and that means the tendon and the muscle leave the bone — which would have been really rather nasty and taken an extraordinary amount of time to recover from.”
How did Henry deal With The Injury?
All the fans of Henry Cavill know that he always keeps a positive outlook no matter what is happening. During this injury also, Cavill saw the injury as a positive thing. And focused on his mental health. He said, “When I look back, I realize, yes, it was a hard time. I think one of the skills I’ve picked up over the years is just forging ahead regardless of difficulty or hard work or trials and tribulations. So when the hamstring injury came, I tried to look at the silver lining. It was like, ‘Ok. I was working insane hours, and it was exhausting, and I now physically can’t work because I’m on crutches.’ So I was focusing more on taking the time off and going, how can I best heal myself?”
