British actress Samantha Womack is hobbling around London's West End against doctors' orders after breaking her toe during Monday's (22Aug11) preview performance of musical South Pacific.
She hit the stage on Tuesday night (23Aug11) even though medics had told her to rest up.
Director Bartlett Sher tells Britain's Daily Mail, "The doctors pumped her full of steroids and bound her foot. She went on in the finest showbusiness tradition that the show always goes on. Sam's a true trouper and she's old school in that you carry on no matter what."
Womack plays Navy nurse Nellie Forbush in the musical.
