Cape Town – Hot on the heels of hosting the Brit Awards earlier this week comedian Jack Whitehall headed to the Mother City for some filming.
Whitehall stars in the upcoming Amazon mini-series Good Omens based on the 1990 novel Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.
In it he plays Newton Pulsifer, a descendant of the witch-finder who burned Agnes Nutter at the stake.
Whitehall shared a picture of his 'injury' on Twitter alongside it he wrote: “Woke up two days after the Brits in South Africa looking like this. (I wish it was cos of a crazy party but alas it was for Good Omens and I was shooting a post car crash scene.)”
