Harrison Ford was spotted leaving a London hospital in a wheelchair this past weekend after breaking his left leg on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII.
“His surgery was successful and he will begin rehab shortly,” his rep said in a statement, adding, “He’s doing well and looks forward to returning to work.”
The 71-year-old is expected to miss six to eight weeks of filming due to the injury, which was reportedly caused when a hydraulic door fell on him.
Harrison has referred to himself as “battered old Ford” after doing his own stunts for decades.
“I keep on coming back for more,” he said in a previous interview. “If it doesn’t look real on the screen then an audience does not believe what it sees.”
The actor, who is reprising his role as Han Solo in the upcoming film, has tried his best to prevent on-set injuries by anticipating his limitations.
“Although I do my own running, jumping and falling, I always try to keep myself from being hurt. So I know what will work and what won’t.”
