Star Wars Episode VII
Harrison Ford 2013

Harrison Ford's publicist has spoken to the BBC regarding the actor's leg injury, which he sustained after a door fell on him on the set of Star Wars Episode VII. Despite previous reports that Ford had broken his ankle, the publicist confirmed that he actually broke his left leg.

"His surgery was successful and he will begin rehab shortly," the publicist said. "He's doing well and looks forward to returning to work."

As we reported yesterday, Ford may return to work earlier than his doctors have recommended, allowing the production to film him in scenes that don't require seeing his leg. Past reports had indicated that the actor could be sidelined from the production for as many as eight weeks.

Here's hoping that he gets well soon!
