London, June 15 IANS | 6 months ago

Actor Harrison Ford's wife Calista Flockhart has rushed to Britain to be with her husband, who was injured while filming the upcoming "Star Wars" film.

The 71-year-old actor is reported to have broken his ankle, although it now seems that the accident could have been more serious than initially suspected.

The "Ally McBeal" star confirmed that she was "en route" to see her husband, who has now been in hospital for several days following the incident, reports contactmusic.com.

Recently, Ford was flown from Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, where "Star Wars Episode VII" is being filmed, to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.

Apparently, a door from the Millennium Falcon spacecraft collapsed and fell on top of him.

Ford is currently reprising his role as space smuggler Han Solo in the "Star Wars" franchise. He had starred in the original trilogy, first released in 1977, and is appearing in the new film alongside fellow original cast members Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill.
