Last Thursday, it was reported that Harrison Ford suffered an ankle injury on the set of the new Star Wars film and was airlifted to a London hospital. This Thursday, Ford’s publicist confirms that he suffered a broken leg, and looks forward to returning to J.J. Abrams’ set in London.
“His surgery was successful and he will begin rehab shortly,” said Ford’s publicist, Ina Treciokas, in a statement. “He’s doing well and looks forward to returning to work.”
The 71-year-old star was involved in a mishap involving the door of the Millennium Falcon.
Ford — reprising his role as Han Solo — is one of the original Star Wars cast members working on Abrams’ film, still scheduled to be released in December 2015.
