The actor appears to have fully recovered following his health scare back in January. The 56-year-old had been exercising when he suffered chest pains, and was taken to St Peter's hospital near his Surrey home. Speaking to The Sun, Antonio confirmed that he had an "episode" and was visited by his daughter Stella following the scare. Sharing a photo with her, he wrote: "My daughter came all the way from L.A. to see me. Total happiness walking around #Guildford!" Speaking about living in Surrey, he told HELLO!: "I find [it] magical. I am not a party person anymore so I have the space and peace to write and really get inside my own head. I'm working on several scripts. I go cycling in the woods and everyone in Cobham, Weybridge and Esher is incredibly friendly. Above all, I am surrounded by nature. I love watching the deer and foxes that come to my garden."
