Few details are known about the incident, other than that it occurred in July of last year. Curry's agent Marcia Hurwitz stated, "Tim is doing great. He absolutely can speak and is recovering at this time and in great humour."

She continued, "He has been going to physical therapy doing very well and in great humor. He thanks everyone for sending him good wishes."

The 67 year old British actor broke out into stardom after his performance as Dr. Frank-N-Furter in the 1975 musical, going on to amount an impressive resume on both stage and screen. In recent years, Curry has found success providing voice work on animated series, as television host and associate of Darkseid G. Gordon Godfrey on DC's "Young Justice," Chancellor Palpatine on "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" and Nigel Thornberry on "The Wild Thornberrys."

Curry keeps his private life closely guarded, but suffered another health scare in 2011 when he was forced to withdraw from a theater production citing debilitating asthma attacks as a result of a chest infection.
