9 Mar – Taron Egerton recently assured that he is doing well, after it was reported that he fainted on stage during his West End performance.

The actor, who was revealed to have collapsed during the opening night of his stage show, "COCK" (yes, that is the title, let's be mature about it), recently posted about his well-being on Instagram Story.


"As some of you may have heard, I passed out during the first performance of COCK last night. I am completely fine. Slightly sore neck and a bruised ego but I'm fine," he wrote.

"I've decided to put a positive spin on it and I would appreciate it if anyone who was in the theatre last night just said that I gave such a committed, electrifying performance that my body couldn't handle it and checked out."

In another Instagram Story, the actor shared a video and expressed, "Did the second preview. Didn't pass out, so..." before giving himself a thumbs up.

According to sources, the "Kingsman" star was tended to by a doctor in the audience following the incident, and was replaced by his understudy Joel Harper-Jackson for the final section of the play.

In "COCK", Egerton plays the role of a boyfriend of an openly gay man who begins to question his sexuality when he falls in love with a woman.
