Olivia Wilde Takes A Break From HOUSE

Olivia Wilde as Dr. Remy Hadley

HOUSE star Olivia Wilde will be taking a break from the hit FOX show during season 7 according to Michael Ausiello. Wilde, who plays Thirteen, is expected to miss roughly two months of filming for season seven.

Olivia Wilde will appear very early in season 7 according to executive producer Katie Jacobs, but then will be gone for “some time” following the opening episode. Wilde’s departure was alluded to the season 6 finale of House when Thirteen, who is afflicted with Huntington’s, announced she was leaving Princeton Plainsboro for a while.

During her “free time,” Wilde will be starring in the upcoming Jon Favreau directed film “Cowboys & Aliens”. The sci-fi Western will begin filming in June and is expected to overlap the filming for season 7 of House. Olivia Wilde will star alongside Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, and Sam Rockwell.
