Harrison Ford, who reprises his role as Han Solo in J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII, is reported to have undergone a leg surgery after having an accident during filming on set. It seems that the force is with him as his publicist says that the surgery was successful.
Ina Treciokas, Ford’s publicist, released a statement on Thursday. “Harrison Ford’s left leg was broken in an accident,” Treciokas said. “His surgery was successful and he will begin rehab shortly. He’s doing well and looks forward to returning to work.”
Filming of this recent Star Wars installment continues while Ford recovers from his injury, which was due to a hydraulic door that fell down and hit him. He was then airlifted to a hospital in Oxford, England shortly after the accident.
