MALIBU, California — Actor Cary Elwes, known for his role in “The Princess Bride,” is recovering in good spirits after what many may consider a frightening moment.

The English actor said he was bitten by a rattlesnake in Malibu over the weekend. He posted a close-up photo of the bite on his finger on Twitter.

“Bit not by a ROUS but a rattlesnake,” said the actor referring to the rat-like creature from his popular film. “Grateful to the staff of Malibu Urgent Care, LA County Fire Dept. and the staff and medical professionals at @UCLAHealth for their great care.”

Paramedics were sent to a home in the 23000 block of Pacific Coast Highway just before 3 p.m. Saturday, the Los Angeles County Fire Department confirmed to Eyewitness News.
