Hey guys, so don't know who has seen/heard and who hasn't that Alex is taking a break from filming due to an issue with prescription painkillers he was taking after injuring himself on set. They think he'll only miss one episode and he was not the focus of that ep so it wasn't an issue.
I suppose for us fans it explains why he has been looking increasingly thin and ill as season 2 progressed. We can only hope that he recovers pretty quick and is back on set soon as the healthy Alex we've come to love.
I know some people have been thinking "oh look another celeb with drug issues" but that's not really fair. In this case he was injured and taking pain meds that are addictive from the get go and he took the first step to get help before it got out of control so I for one still whole heartedly support him and won't stop.
Just thought I'd put this on here for those that didn't know. You can find the article on numerous online news sites.
