British actor Tim Curry, known for his role as Dr. Frank-N-Furter in cult classic “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” is reportedly recovering after suffering a stroke at his home in Los Angeles, according to the Daily Mail.

“Tim is doing great,” his agent Marcia Hurwitz told the Daily Mail. “He absolutely can speak and is recovering at this time and in great humor.”

Curry, 67, starred in “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” on screen after originating the role of Dr. Frank-N-Furter on stage in London and L.A. Along with working in film and television, Curry’s also done voice work and appeared on Broadway in shows ranging from 1980’s “Amadeus” to 2005’s “Spamalot.”

Curry, who lives in the Hollywood Hills, appeared just last year in Eric Idle’s play “What About Dick?” at the Orpheum here in L.A.
