The daughter of beloved actor James Garner has assured fans her father is "doing fine" after recent photographs of the frail star sparked concerns for his health .
Garner was snapped visiting a Beverly Hills, California hospital, looking gaunt and distant, but his author daughter Gigi insists the pictures are deceiving.
She says, "He had a stroke on May 9th but he's doing well. He's doing really well in fact. He's perfect."
The 80-year-old star, who spent three weeks in hospital after undergoing surgery following his stroke, was photographed clutching a cane as a nurse and his driver helped him into a wheelchair.
His representative says, "Jim was at the medical centre for a routine outpatient check up with his doctor."
