Emmy- and Tony-winning actress Kristin Chenoweth, who hails from Broken Arrow, is recovering from an on-set accident and feels grateful to her fans for their support.
The Oklahoma native, who is celebrating her 44th birthday today, took to Twitter (@KChenoweth) this afternoon to post: “To all my fans: thank you for support and love! Doin better everyday. More to come when im Able!” She added a second tweet moments later: “I love you guys.xo.”
They were her first tweets since July 11, when she was injured in an accident of the set of the TV show “The Good Wife.” The Oklahoman’s Rick Rogers reported that the accident occurred when Chenoweth was hit in the head by a piece of scaffolding knocked loose by wind.
Following the accident, Chenoweth was treated by medics at the Brooklyn filming location before being taken to the hospital. After the accident, a family friend said Chenoweth’s parents were flying to New York to be with their daughter during her recovery, Rick reported.
Chenoweth (“Pushing Daisies,” “GCB”) will have a recurring role in Season 4 of “The Good Wife” and will make her debut in September’s season premiere, according to CBS.
The Oklahoma native will match wits with both Alicia (Julianna Margulies) and Peter (Chris Noth) in her role as a top-of-her-game political reporter who wants to know more about the Florrick campaign and marriage.
Chenoweth received an Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in the series “Pushing Daisies” and has appeared in the comedy “Glee,” for which she received two Emmy nominations for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series. She starred in the recently cancelled series “GCB.”
“The Good Wife,” which stars Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award winner Julianna Margulies, is one of television’s most critically acclaimed dramas. In addition to receiving nine 2011 Primetime Emmy nominations, the most for a broadcast network series, the drama has won or been nominated for multiple awards, including the Peabody Awards, the Golden Globe Awards, the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the People’s Choice Awards.
“The Good Wife” airs at 8 p.m. Sundays on the CBS Television Network.
