In response to his post, fans are commenting on the picture wishing him a "speedy recovery." And it sounds like he's going to be just fine!

Skarsgård is currently in Canada filming his latest movie, The Hummingbird Project, which he co-stars alongside Salma Hayek and Jesse Eisenberg.

Last month, the actor sparked a social media frenzy after he showed off his new bald hairdo, which is thought to be for his role in the film, on the red carpet at the Louis Vuitton's Volez, Voguez, Voyagez Exhibition Opening in New York City.
