Tim Curry’s Stroke Occured Last July, Not Thursday
Tim Curry, the British actor and star of 1975’s Rocky Horror Picture Show, is recovering from a stroke he suffered last July, his rep confirmed to USA Today.
“He has been going to physical therapy, doing very well and in great humor,” Curry’s longtime publicist Marcia Hurwitz told USA Today. “He thanks everyone for sending him good wishes.”
Hurwitz’s remarks come after reports emerged that Curry had suffered a stroke on Thursday. She cleared the air to reveal that the actor had indeed suffered a stroke but that it was last summer, and that he has been recovering well from the health scare.
The Mail Online had falsely reported that Curry, 67, had collapsed Thursday as a result of a stroke. Hurwitz had reportedly told the news outlet, "Tim is doing great. He absolutely can speak and is recovering at this time and in great humor.”
