The Spotlight star donned a white face mask and appeared in pain as he used his crutches to walk down the street.   

Liev’s girlfriend Taylor Neisen, 27, meanwhile, was spotted heading to a florist where she picked up a huge bouquet- presumably to give to the actor once he had returned home. 

The couple have been going strong ever since they started dating in 2017, following his divorce from Naomi Watts.

Liev has been busy shooting scenes for Across The River with his onscreen love interest Maltida De Angelis, who plays an 18-year-old Italian contessa called Renata, over the past few weeks. 

The actor plays US Army Col. Cantwell, a hero who faces news of his illness with stoic disregard. 

Set in WW2 he commandeers a military driver to facilitate a visit to some of his old haunts in Venice.

As Cantwell’s plans begin to unravel, a chance encounter with a remarkable young woman begins to rekindle in him the hope of renewal  

Based on the last full-length novel by Ernest Hemingway, the movie captures a fleeting moment of immortality where time stands still.

Four years ago The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Pierce Brosnan would play the lead role with his GoldenEye director Martin Campbell at the helm.

However the current director is Spanish filmmaker Paula Ortiz and this September it emerged in Deadline that Liev is playing the colonel.
