Priyanka Chopra suffered a concussion while filming her ABC series Quantico on Thursday.
“There was a minor incident on the N.Y. set of Quantico last night,” an ABC spokesperson confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter on Friday.
Chopra suffered the concussion while performing a stunt, according to a source. Production for the show remained on schedule, a second source confirmed to THR.
On Friday, her rep confirmed she was “immediately taken to the hospital, examined by a doctor and released.” Adding that she was “resting comfortably at home on doctors orders” and would return to work after the weekend.
By Monday morning, Chopra was back on set. “While she is still sore and stiff from her fall, she is getting stronger every day and is happy to be back at work,” her rep told THR on Tuesday.
Chopra was notably absent from a Friday press event in New York City with showrunner Joshua Safran and the main ensemble cast, including Johanna Braddy, Blair Underwood, Jake McLaughlin, Russell Tovey and Yasmine Al Massri.
“I do all of the stunts myself,” she said. “The action sequences really, really push me this time. I’m fighting numerous people together and it’s extremely challenging and so much fun to shoot.”
On Sunday, Chopra took to Twitter to thank her fans for all the “warm thoughts and well wishes.”
Thank you for all of your warm thoughts and well wishes.I will be ok, and am looking forward to getting back to work as soon as I can.much
