British star Tim Curry, who is known for his awesome portrayal of Dr. Frank-N-Furter in the cult musical “Rocky Horror Picture Show”, is recovering after suffering a major stroke at his home in Los Angeles.
The 67-year old actor is said to be “doing great” after the stroke last night.
Tim Curry became famous for his role as Dr. Frank-N-Furter in the 1975 movie “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”.
He was great in this movie and remains a favorite because of Curry’s role as a “sweet transvestite
From Transexual, Transylvania”.
Curry is also known for his role as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in the 1980 Broadway production of “Amadeus” and we loved him as Pennywise the Clown in the 1990 horror film “It”.
There are not many details given to the media about Curry’s stroke Thursday night, but sources close to the actor denied rumors he was unable to speak.
His longtime agent Marcia Hurwitz said, “Tim is doing great. He absolutely can speak and is recovering at this time and in great humor.”
In 2011, he was scheduled to portray the Player in a Trevor Nunn production of Tom Stoppard’s “Rosencrantz and Gildenstern are Dead”, but withdrew due to ill health. He was said to be suffering from debilitating asthma attacks after a chest infection.
We wish Tim Curry a speedy recovery!
