Dominic Purcell Suffers Broken Nose & Head Injury in 'Prison Break' Set Accident

Dominic Purcell has suffered a broken nose and an injury to his head after an accident on the set of the Prison Break revival series in Morocco.

A set piece was dislodged and fell on the 46-year-old actor’s head while filming on Monday (May 30), but production will not be delayed due to the set back.

“Had a little accident on set,” Dominic captioned a photo of his injured face on Instagram. “Pays to have a thick skull when an iron bar falls on your head!! busting it open severely also broke my nose in two places. Haha. I got a free nose job out of it…… Stoked to be alive. All good. #chill. Oh. I didn’t get knocked out took a knee. Ha!! Doc said I have an unusually tough tissue fiber that’s what saved me apparently. Thank god for my #Viking heritage hahaha!!!!”

“Our friend and colleague Dominic Purcell was injured earlier this week during the filming of our event series Prison Break, and was flown to a medical facility where he received treatment,” a spokesman for 20th Century Fox television said in a statement to Deadline. “We are happy to report that he is in great spirits and is expected to make a full recovery. He wanted us to express his appreciation to the fans around the world who have expressed their concern and support, and to reassure them that he will be back at work very soon.”

    The show needs more of Michael and less of Lincoln. This could be a good thing.

    When I think Prison Break all I can picture is T Bag twisting his tongue and holding a Phillips screwdriver.
