In a statement to Deadline, HBO revealed a recurring actor on Westworld suffered an off-set injury and production has been suspended temporarily.


HBO says the cast and crew sincerely hopes for a speedy recovery.

The injury happened to one of the male members of the cast who had fallen and hit his head at home according to an insider for the publication. TMZ reports that the injury is "serious". Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright and Thandie Newton were all nominated for their performances on the show. But it bagged only four Emmys in the crafts categories, including VFX. The show is about the titular Wild West-themed amusement park that's filled with realistic androids who cater to the whims of its guests.

The drama began production on its sophomore run in July for an expected 2018 return.
