While filming the US television series, 'Parenthood', actress Erika Christensen broke her arm when she fell off her bike, although the accident has been incorporated into the show.
Erika Christensen, the star of 2000's 'Traffic', has broken her arm in a bicycle accident. Christensen, who is currently starring in the hit US television series 'Parenthood', was seen in Los Angeles sporting a cast on her right arm on 5th April, 2011. The 28-year-old is expecting to recover very quickly, due to the cutting edge technology she has been given.
The ultrasound device is fitted within her bandages, and spoke about the device - as well as the accident - to Tmz.com. She casually explained: "I crashed my bike... It didn't really hurt... This is for an ultrasound. It stimulates bone growth... technology today, right!?"
More impressively, the injury was easily worked into the series. Her character in 'Parenthood' has supposedly received a broken arm off-screen in an ice-skating accident, as was explained during an episode which aired on Tuesday, 5th April, 2011.
