NEW YORK (CBS/AP) — Kristin Chenoweth has been injured on the New York City set of the CBS drama “The Good Wife” and has been taken to a hospital.
Her publicist, Jill Fritzo, says she was hit in the head by scaffolding and was taken to the hospital by ambulance.
Chenoweth’s condition hasn’t been disclosed.
A fire department spokesman says a woman at that Brooklyn location suffered minor injuries, but he won’t identify her.
The 43-year-old Chenoweth won a Tony Award for her role in Broadway’s “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” and an Emmy Award for her work on “Pushing Daisies.” She has a recurring role on “The Good Wife” in the upcoming season.
CBS issued a statement Wednesday evening. “This afternoon, while filming a scene for ‘The Good Wife’ in Brooklyn, a gust of wind blew a lighting silk out of place striking actress Kristin Chenoweth. She received treatment on the scene by the show’s medic until a New York Fire Department emergency medical team arrived and transported her to the hospital. All of us at the studio and the show are thinking about Kristin and wishing her a quick recovery.”
In 2009, Chenoweth won an Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series Emmy for her role in the series “Pushing Daisies,” and she was nominated twice for guest appearances on “Glee.”
