Kirstin Chenoweth, beloved by the LGBT community for her staunch support of equality, was injured Wednesday (11 July) while shooting an episode of the CBS legal drama The Good Wife.

Chenoweth was rushed to the hospital from the show’s Brooklyn set. Witnesses tell TMZ.com that she was knocked to the ground by a piece of lighting equipment and hit her head on the concrete.

‘I thought she was dead at first,’ a witness tells the website.

Despite the dramatic descriptions of what happened, a New York Fire Department representative tells TMZ that the actress is at the hospital being treated for ‘minor injuries.’

Chenoweth is coming off of the cancellation of her ABC series GCB after just one season. She won an Emmy for her role in the ABC comedy Pushing Daisies and a Tony Award for the musical You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown. Her other musical credits include Wicked and Promises, Promises.

Last year, she received the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation’s Vanguard Award for her work to increase the visibility and understanding of the LGBT community in the media.

She called it ‘the biggest honor I have ever received.’ She also talked about her Christian faith and how it never prevented her from accepting gay people. Her parents, she said, told her early on: ‘You will love everyone the same.’
