Calista Flockhart has crossed the Atlantic to visit husband Harrison Ford in hospital after his injury on the set of Star Wars: Episode 7.

The 71-year-old actor is reprising his role as Hans Solo, and was rushed to John Radcliffe hospital in Oxford this week, after he broke an ankle while shooting a scene at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, 20 miles from central London.

Filmmakers say that Ford's injury will not affect the ongoing filming of the upcoming movie, and the shooting schedule is being reorganised, with Ford’s unfilmed scenes postponed until he’s fit again.
