Tim Curry’s Health & Age in 2016: Four Years After His Stroke

Tim Curry

Tim Curry, age 70, made the character Dr. Frank-N-Furter of The Rocky Horror Picture Show into an icon in 1975. Though the movie wasn't as well-received at the time, it became a cult classic and is still beloved today. Now, the movie has been remade by FOX, with Laverne Cox in the lead role as Furter. Curry is returning to the screen in the role of The Criminologist. In 2012, Curry suffered a massive stroke, which has left him in a wheelchair, but he's come a long way since the incident. In 2015, Curry talked about the key to recovering from the stroke and maintaining his health is his sense of humor. In a 2015 interview with Los Angeles Magazine, Curry stated that his sense of humor was vital, but not hard to maintain. He also said that he's been doing well. Tim Curry has given his blessing for the remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and has spent a great deal of time on set, even when he wasn't filming. Actor Reeve Carney from the remake, talked to People about Curry, gushing that he is “such a wonderful guy, such a sweet spirit and such an incredible talent and to be that humble having done as much as he’s done, it’s always nice to see that.” For more information on Curry's health and his being part of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, click through our gallery of his best pics from the new project.
