The Broadway star and Emmy winning actress on shows including The West Wing and Glee was involved in another freak on-set accident yesterday in NYC while filming scenes for her newest show The Good Wife. Kristin was rushed to the hospital after being hit in the head by a piece of lighting equipment that collapsed and then smacking her head on the ground as she fell! How bad was the scene? A witness told TMZ he thought she was dead!
Kristin was fitted into a neck brace and taken out on a stretcher to a nearby hospital. Her injuries are being reported as "minor" and she is expected to return to work soon. Phew!
This isn't the first time Kristin has hurt herself on-set though. She injured her neck while performing Wicked on Broadway in 2003, then had another Broadway mishap while falling off an elevated stage during a rehearsal for The Apple Tree in 2006. On the set of Glee last year, she fell down a set of stairs and injured her back. Clumsy much?! We're just glad she's okay!
