Actress recovering after minor incident

Cate Blanchett had to pull out of her stage show last night after being hit by a prop.

The actress was performing in A Streetcar Named Desire in Sydney when she was accidentally clobbered with a radio during a fight scene with co-star Joel Edgerton.

‘There was a minor incident on stage that unfortunately did injure Cate,’ Sydney Theatre Company’s Tim McKeough tells the BBC.  

‘There was a moment when another actor lifted the prop above his head and she somehow sustained a minor blow to the head.’

Cate, 40, was reportedly seen leaving the stage with blood pouring from the wound.

She is expected to return to the show tonight.
