Desperate Housewives actor critically injured

Gale Harold and Teri Hatcher in a scene from Desperate HousewivesActor Gale Harold, 41, who plays Jackson Braddock, the boyfriend of Teri Hatcher‘s character Susan Mayer on the current season of the hit series Desperate Housewives, is in critical but stable condition in hospital after crashing his motorcycle Tuesday. His injuries include a broken shoulder and swelling on his brain. According to the show’s creator/executive producer Marc Cherry, Harold had been filming scenes all week and had been scheduled to be on set the day of the crash. He said they would wait to hear the full prognosis before deciding how to proceed with the show, but in the meantime, at least one scene will have to be rewritten.

    Maybe if he wore a helmet he might have been ok…you reap what you sow.

    It doesn’t say whether or not he wore a helmet. These injuries could have happened even with a helmet, depending on the circumstances.

    I feel terrible about Gale but I’d rather see Susan (Teri) get back together with Mike. It will be interesting to see how the new scenes will be re-written.

    Nothing against Gale Harold. He sure looks good for 41!! And yes, Mandee, he is a good actor!

    Wishing Gale a speedy recovery! {but still rooting for Mike}
