Kevin Spacey was said to have been hurried to the hospital when he experienced numbness in his left arm during the 15th Tashkent International Film Festival in Uzbekistan.

It is reported that the 64-year-old actor, who has won two Oscars, subsequently had an MRI scan, as per The Sun.

During his visit to the Afrasiyab Museum in the historic Silk Road town of Samarkand, Kevin Spacey experienced a health issue. He described feeling a momentary numbness in his entire left arm that lasted for approximately eight seconds.

Following this alarming incident, “Elvis & Nixon” actor was promptly transported to the Innova Diagnostic Clinic in Samarkand, where he underwent a thorough medical evaluation, including an MRI scan.
