Meghan Ory isn’t having a fairy tale week. The former Once Upon a Time star’s new CBS midseason drama Intelligence halted production after she was hospitalized for an appendectomy last week.
After undergoing surgery, Meghan expected to be back this week, but according to Deadline, the show stopped filming on October 17, unable to film around her any longer.
Considering that standard recovery post-appendectomy recovery time is two to three weeks, it makes sense that she’s not up and around yet — especially since this spy show has her running around and wielding a gun — and Meghan was advised by her doctors for longer bedrest.
“With no more prepped scenes that don’t feature Ory left to film, production on Intelligence is staying dark through tomorrow,” the site continues, noting that she is cleared to return on Monday.
Fingers crossed that Meghan is feeling better after the weekend. If production on Intelligence runs smoothly, she hopefully will have some time to return to Once Upon a Time in the second half of the ABC show’s third season. Recently, show boss Eddy Kitsis revealed that she is “definitely a part of the show and she will hopefully be back in the latter half of the season.”
Meghan also dished where she thinks Ruby is right now at Comic-Con this summer. "I like to think she just went running around the woods in wolf-form. She's like, 'You know, I want to stretch my legs and go for a run.’ I think that we will see her again."
Fingers crossed! Until then, we can catch the series premiere of Intelligence on Monday, February 24 at 10 p.m. ET on CBS. Feel free to leave your well wishes for Meghan in the comments below!
