On the ABC thriller Quantico, star Priyanka Chopra has been put through a lot of dangerous situations, at least while she's in character as FBI-to-CIA analyst Alex Parrish. This week, however, the actress found herself the victim of a pretty nasty fall on the set while filming the back half of Season 2, and it reportedly resulted in a concussion, landing Chopra in the hospital. She's okay now, thank goodness, but the injury did require her to take a little time off.
It appears that Preiyanka Chopra was in the middle of filming a Quantico stunt on Thursday night when she slipped, with her head taking the brunt of the damage from the fall. According to TMZ, Chopra was then zipped over to the hospital to check on her injuries, where it was determined she'd suffered a concussion. After the examination and treatment were complete, the actress was released a few hours after arriving, and she went home to rest.
Production on Quantico did not stop on Thursday, nor did things get shut down on Friday, despite Priyanka Chopra not being present for filming. There are, after all, lots of scenes that don't require the actress' presence, so it's of course always advisable to make the most of a bad situation. She also wasn't present for a promotional event on Friday, which is just as understandable.
Fans don't need to fret about Quantico losing its leading lady for any extended period. Unless something sudden occurs in the very near future, Priyanka Chopra is expected to return to Quantico's production after the weekend. You probably won't even notice that anything was wrong, unless the editor really botches things.
You can take a look at the trailer for Quantico's drama-filled midseason premiere below.
Despite starting off as one of the hottest freshman series of the 2015-2016 TV season, Quantico's flashback-heavy mystery soon lost its tight grip on audiences, and Season 2 has seen the ratings go even deeper downhill, both the total viewers and the key 18-49 demographic. Those numbers could possibly turn soon on a new night free from both The Walking Dead and NFL football, but if not, ABC might start looking to find a new show to take its spot. And that would be a whole different kind of headache for Priyanka Chopra.
Quantico will return to audiences and ABC on a new night when its midseason premiere airs on Monday, January 23, at 10:00 p.m. ET. To see what else the small screen has to offer in the near future, head to our midseason premiere schedule.
