Northern Irish actor James Nesbitt has reportedly sought medical attention over fears he may have developed deep vein thrombosis (Dvt) in his leg after flying long-haul between the U.K. and New Zealand to film The Hobbit.
The Cold Feet star will portray dwarf Bofur in the upcoming Lord Of The Rings prequel, and has been jetting to and from New Zealand, where the film is being shot.
After suffering severe pains in his leg and ankle during a recent charity golf match, Nesbitt was looked over by doctors, who suspect he is suffering from Dvt - a blood clot in a vein often associated with long haul flights, according to Britain's The Sun.
A source says, "It was clear he was in agony because he limped his way around the course."
