Sarah Wayne Callies, who plays Dr. Sara Tancredi on FOX’s Prison Break, is expecting her first child with her husband, Josh Winterhalt.

The baby is due in late summer, according to her publicist Jodi Gottlieb. TV Guide first reported the news on Tuesday.

Callies, 29, has primarily been a TV actress during her career, having co-starred on the short-lived TV series Queens Supreme and Tarzan before Prison Break.

In September, she talked to the Dallas Morning News about appearing on the hit FOX drama, on which almost no character seems safe from being killed off.

“You certainly never know when you’re reading a script if it might be your last,” she said. “But I’m not afraid, because this experience for me has been so rewarding. I’ll still be grateful if it ends next week.”

Prison Break returned to FOX on Monday night after a two-month hiatus.
