'Rocky Horror Picture Show' star Tim Curry is recovering at home following a major stroke.

The 67-year-old actor is said to be "doing fine" and recuperating in Los Angeles following a collapse last night.

His long-time agent Marcia Hurwitz dismissed claims the stroke has affected the 67-year-old actor's speech and insists the star is in good spirits.

She told the The Daily Mail: "Tim is doing great. He absolutely can speak and is recovering at this time and in great humour."

Curry was forced to pull out of a production of 'Rosencrantz and Gildenstern are Dead' in Chichester and London due to debilitating asthma attacks after a chest infection in 2011.

Curry is best known for playing Dr Frank-N-Furter in the The Rocky Horror Picture show’ musical alongside Susan Sarandon 1975. He also starred in ‘Clue’, ‘Annie’, ’Legend’ and as Pennywise the Clown in horror miniseries ‘It’.
