Madam Secretary season 3 star Tim Daly broke both of his legs in a skiing accident while he was at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah. What could this mean for the show?
The actor confirmed the bad news himself on Twitter but also assured his fans that he is doing fine. He tweeted, “HUMANS!!! Broke my right ankle and left knee skiing. Simultaneously! How’s that for talent? I’m all good.”
The actor is scheduled for surgery on Wednesday and it will take six to eight weeks for him to recover, according to Variety. However, production of the CBS political drama is not expected to experience delay amidst Daly’s injury. Nonetheless, there might be some changes.
Apparently, the show’s writers are now working on ways to accommodate Daly’s situation in the script. Among the writers’ options is to write the actor’s injury into the story or shoot around it like how shows accommodate actresses’ pregnancies.
Meanwhile, fans quickly expressed their concern and support to Daly on Twitter. Most sent their speedy recovery messages for the actor.
The 60-year-old actor portrays the role of Elizabeth McCord’s (Téa Leoni) husband, Dr. Henry McCord in Madam Secretary. Henry is also the head of a special intelligence analysis unit that hunts terrorists.
Daly is scheduled to appear in all episodes of season 3. He is also due to appear at the BroadwayCon in New York City this weekend along with his Madam Secretary co-stars.
A rep for the event told Entertainment Tonight in a statement, “The Madam Secretary panel schedule will be the same. We’re in communication with the Madam Secretary team and are hopeful that Tim will be able to join us.”
