Why ‘Blindspot’ Star Jaimie Alexander Spent the Weekend in the Hospital
It’s been a heck of a weekend for Jaimie Alexander. The actress, who regularly kicks butt as tatted FBI consultant Jane Doe on Blindspot (one of the most watched shows of the 2017/18 season) was forced into a hospital bed this weekend when her own body turned against her.
The trouble seemed to start on Thursday, when Alexander, 33, took to Twitter with a shot of herself in a hospital bed and a sickly green emoji, saying, “Cheers to my appendix.”

Things seemed to come to a head last night, however, with the star sharing a second selfie in her hospital gown and filling us in on her status. “Hey guys!” she wrote. “Appendix ruptured but am on the mend!”

Still, she didn’t waste any time getting back to business, adding, “Just wanted to say a quick hello and let you all know that one of my favorite episodes is TONIGHT! I’m so excited for you all to see it.”
It’s not her first go with physical pain: Back in 2016, the raven-haired beauty broke her nose on set while filming a fight scene.
Broke my nose today during a fight scene. Somehow I feel that makes me cooler 👊🏻😎😂 #BLINDSPOT ⚔

She wound up back at work the very next day, however, writing, “Back at it!”
Talk about one tough babe! Here’s to hoping she recovers just as quickly this time around.
