Gold Logie Winner Samuel Johnson in hospital after being struck by car

"He is awake, talking and wondering where his pants are."

The Secret Life of Us actor Samuel Johnson is recovering in hospital with a head injury after being hit by a car on Saturday night, on his way to visit family.

His sister, Hilde, posted the news to his Love Your Sister charity Facebook page, saying, 'He's awake and not too happy that he doesn't have his pants - nobody loves a hospital gown. The fantastical medical staff are in overdrive taking care of his sore head,’ she added. ‘I’ll keep you updated.'

The Gold Logie winner had quit acting when his sister, Connie, was diagnosed with cancer (for a third time) in 2012 and launched the LYS charity, raising millions for cancer research. Connie tragically lost her battle with cancer in 2017.

Samuel made his return to TV and won Dancing with the Stars in 2019, and had just made his way back to acting with the drama series, Eden, (now streaming on Stan.)

Here is Hilde's full post: 'I wish I didn't have to tell you this. Early Saturday night Sam was on his way to visit family when he was accidentally hit by a car. Our Ambos got him picked up and tucked away safely in hospital in record time. I followed them in. The fantastical medical staff are in overdrive taking care of his sore head. He's awake and not too happy that he doesn't have his pants - nobody loves a hospital gown. Hearing his voice is lovely, but can't wait for hugs when it's safe. I'll keep you updated. Hilde.'

We wish Sam a very speedy recovery.
