“Westworld” actor Zahn McClarnon is “on the mend” following an off-site accident caused him to be hospitalized earlier this week.
“Actor Zahn McClarnon was hospitalized Wednesday night after sustaining an injury at home,” HBO said in a statement obtained by TheWrap. “He is on the mend and looking forward to getting back to work. ‘Westworld’ will resume filming on both units next week.”
The cable network said on Thursday that production on one of the show’s two units was temporarily suspended when a recurring actor suffered a “medical emergency.”
“The cast member was not on set when this occurred, and out of respect for the performer’s privacy, we have no additional details to share, other than that everyone at ‘Westworld’ sincerely hopes for a quick recovery,” HBO said at the time.
According to TMZ, McClarnon was injured in a fall at his home and was hospitalized with “serious trauma.”
McClarnon joined the cast of the HBO sci-fi series for Season 2 in an unspecified recurring role. His other credits include Season 2 of the FX anthology series “Fargo,” the AMC western “The Son” and Netflix’s “Longmire.”
“Westworld” Season 2 is set to debut next spring, but no official premiere date has been set.
