Han Solo is now part droid.

A few weeks after breaking his leg on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII, Harrison Ford has been seen around London in a large leg brace, as he works to regain full fitness for filming.

The complicated brace is like a crutch, but it acts as a prosthetic peg leg, keeping the knee bent and the foot elevated.

The actor, 71, broke his left leg on June 12, one of the first days of shooting, and was rushed to a hospital in Oxford for surgery.

“His surgery was successful and he will begin rehab shortly. He’s doing well and looks forward to returning to work,” his rep told PEOPLE.

Reports at the time said he may have injured himself while shooting on the set of the Millennium Falcon.

After joining Ford in London, his wife, Calista Flockhart, and their son, Liam, have been spotted sightseeing in Paris, touring the ancient sewers and strolling in Montmartre.
