He shared some photos of his injuries on Instagram with a message to fans, writing, “Had a little accident on set. Haha ! Back at work asap. 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.”

Prison Break star Dominic Purcell suffered a broken nose and a head injury this week when a piece of iron from the set fell on him while filming in Morocco. The good news is that he’s expected to make a full recovery and will return to the show as soon as he’s able.

According to Deadline, shooting was not affected and the production is still on schedule. Purcell will film his missed Morocco scenes on a green screen once the production returns to its soundstage in Vancouver. Prison Break will return as a limited series in spring 2017.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Dominic!
