Dylan O'Brien, the "Maze Runner" star who was severely injured when he was hit by a car on the set of the franchise's latest movie, is literally a broken man. While he will return to normal, it's going to take some time.
In fact, production of "Maze Runner: The Death Cure" was pushed back while he recovers from breaking three bones in his face.
TMZ caught up with Dylan's co-star Dexter Darden and he shared an update on the fate of the franchise's third movie and Dylan's condition. And more specifically, how his face is doing.
"We've been postponed," Dexter told a camera crew during an impromptu interview. "Our main goal is to just make sure that Dylan gets better. So we're just supporting him as friends, as cast mates during this time that he's healing. And then as soon as he's healed and ready to go, we're going to be right back on it for Maze Runner 3."
Dexter said he wasn't on set when the accident happened, but he was nearby. He also sounds pretty up to speed on the condition of Dylan, who he calls "the most hardworking man in show business."
"He's feeling well," Dexter said, adding that, "He's dashingly good looking. He looks fine!"
During the interview, Dexter also gave a glimpse of what happened on March 17. The studio, remember, initially gave little insight, only saying that he was "injured" and taken to a hospital.
Of the stunt gone wrong, he said he couldn't discuss much, but claimed, "He did it well, he executed everything perfectly." It should be noted that Dylan does all his own stunts. "It was just a little malfunction with the wires and it's unfortunate."
After the injury, "Maze Runner" director Wes Ball called Dylan "one tough cookie."
"Well, it's been a whirlwind of emotions these past few days. I've been overwhelmed with feelings of anger and sadness and guilt," he said on Twitter. "But ultimately I find myself left with just a deep love and respect for Dylan. He is one tough cookie."
"I'm sorry for the grief this accident has caused his friends and family as well as my wonderful cast and crew. It's scary seeing your friend get hurt, but fortunately, Dylan is going to be just fine. After a few weeks of rest and recovery he will be back up and running to finish our adventure together. All the best."
