Larry Miller, an actor who has starred in TV shows such as ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’, ‘Seinfeld’, and several Garry Marshall movies, “Princess Bride”, “Valentines Day”, etc., is lucky to be alive today, after suffering a life-threatening brain injury!
According to People, the actor, 58, fell and hit his head last April after finishing a podcast with comedian Adam Carolla. He lost his footing and hit the back of his head on the sidewalk. Larry’s rep reveals that the married father of two had gone into a coma, and was put on life support at UCLA for one month.
“He was hovering between life and death,” says his spokesman, Michael Hansen. “It’s a miracle he woke up. … He’s lucky to be alive.”
After Miller regained consciousness, he began a long recovery process to re-master basic cognitive functions.
“He had to work on some issues regarding brain connectivity,” says Hansen.
Now expected to make a full recovery, Miller is back at work on his podcast series, This Week with Larry Miller, which resumes Jan. 9.
“I’m very thankful to have recovered from a traumatic brain injury so quickly,” Miller tells PEOPLE.
He’s very lucky indeed! Thank God it wasn’t more serious!
