The cast of “Battlestar Galactica” have banded together to show their support for co-star Michael Hogan.
The Canadian actor suffered a brain injury after a fall at a Vancouver restaurant back in February.
“The accident left him with complete paralysis on his left side, memory loss, cognitive impairment, and an inability to swallow,” explains Hogan’s wife Susan in a message written on a GoFundMe page which has been set up to cover the cost of his treatment.
Actress Shari Ulrich is among the organizers of the GoFundMe, who played Colonel Saul Tigh on the sci-fi series.
Ulrich wrote that “it is unlikely Michael will be able to work again” due to his injuries.
“Battlestar Galactica” actress Tricia Helfer took to Twitter to encourage fans of the show to support the GoFundMe page.
