Shaw Collapses On Stage

British actor MARTIN SHAW shocked theatre-goers this week (beg16Aug10) when he collapsed on stage during the latest performance of his play.
The 65 year old is currently starring in a production of The Country Girl at the Severn Theatre in Shrewsbury, England, but Wednesday's (18Aug10) show was halted after the TV actor fell ill and fainted.
The curtain was brought down as medics rushed to attend to Shaw, and after 20 minutes the play resumed with an understudy taking the star's place.
A representative for the Judge John Deed actor has blamed the collapse on Shaw's ongoing medical problems, telling Britain's The Sun, "He passed out because he has a cracked rib, a chest infection and is on antibiotics. He probably shouldn't have been on stage but didn't want to disappoint his fans."
