Oscar-winning actress Marcia Gay Harden is limping around the set of Tv drama The Newsroom after undergoing foot surgery.

The 53 year old has replaced Rosemarie DeWitt in the show, and co-star Jane Fonda has revealed Harden has been suffering from foot problems during the shoot.

Fonda has detailed her time on the set in her online blog and revealed the actress recently underwent an operation. She even posted a picture of Harden wearing a smart dress with casual soft shoes.

She writes. "My scenes (on The Newsroom) were with Sam Waterston, Marcia Gay Harden and Chris Messina, who plays my son.... Marcia Gay had recent foot surgery so wore slippers when she wasn't shooting."
