On Monday, Elwes shared an update via social media, posting a close-up of his hand in which one of his fingers and fingernails appears swollen and blue.

“Bit not by a ROUS but a rattlesnake,” he wrote, referencing his classic 1987 movie The Princess Bride.

“Grateful to the staff of Malibu Urgent Care, LA County Fire Dept. and the staff and medical professionals at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center for their great care. Am recovering well thanks to all these wonderful folks. 🙏.”

Several friends of the star showed their support in the comments.

“Omg🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻,” actress Joely Fisher wrote, while Elwes’ Stranger Things co-star Randy Havens said, “Oh my gosh Cary! Please feel better! Sending healing thoughts your way.”

“OMG Cary!!!! Wow. Thank god you’re ok that is terrifying,” Canadian actress Cristina Rosato said.

Elwes was hospitalised twice on the set of The Princess Bride, in which he played protagonist Westley. In his book As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride, Elwes recalls the severity of his injuries.

The actor was hit in the head with a sword by co-star Christopher Guest as part of the script. Elwes writes that the blow “landed just a touch harder than either of us anticipated.”

“And that, folks, was the last thing I remember from that day’s shoot,” he says in the book.

“I woke up in the emergency room, still in costume, to the frightening sound of stitches being sewn into my skull … and of course Chris felt absolutely terrible about the whole thing, even though I kept telling him it wasn’t his fault. It was my dumb idea.”

“But you know what? That particular take was the one that ended up in the film,” he adds. “So when you see Westley fall to the ground and pass out, that’s not acting. That’s an overzealous actor actually losing consciousness.”

In another incident, Elwes broke his toe while on set.

The Saw star also celebrated his daughter Dominque’s 15th birthday over the weekend, sharing a sweet tribute via Instagram in honour of her special day.

“15 years ago this sweet, intelligent, beautiful **** lady came into the world and made it a better place,” Elwes wrote. “Happy Birthday @dominiqueelwes We ❤️You so much! 🎂👏🎇”
