Actress Kristin Chenoweth has quit U.S. legal drama The Good WIFE after suffering a serious on-set head injury last month (Jul12).
(I'm) getting better slowly, and thank you everyone for your concern
The Glee star was admitted to hospital in New York on 11 July (12) after she was struck by a falling piece of lighting equipment while shooting scenes in Brooklyn.
She was discharged a day later and continued her recuperation at home, telling fans she was "doing better every day" during a Twitter.com update on 24 July (12).
However, Chenoweth is still yet to fully recover and she has been forced to pull out of her recurring role on the TV show as a result.
She tells People.com, "It is with deep regret (I have) to inform everyone that due to my injuries, I am unable to return to The Good Wife. (I'm) getting better slowly, and thank you everyone for your concern".
Chenoweth had been cast in a multi-arc storyline alongside series stars Julianna Margulies, Josh Charles and Chris Noth.
