Harrison Ford broke leg in 'Star Wars' set mishap, publicist says


Buckinghamshire, England (CNN) -- Harrison Ford suffered a broken leg, not an injured ankle as the studio previously said, on the "Star Wars" set last week, his publicist said Thursday.

"Harrison Ford's left leg was broken in an accident," spokeswoman Ina Treciokas said in a statement to CNN.

She didn't say how long the actor would be out of work, but he is apparently on the road to recovery.
