VIA| On Wednesday evening, the official Facebook page for “The Way” gave fans some sad news about beloved actor Martin Sheen.
Sheen, who is best known for his parts in “The West Wing” and “Apocalypse Now,” had to have quadruple bypass surgery and was currently in recovery.
“The decision to operate on his heart was a proactive one, not an emergency situation,” the actor’s son, Emilio Estevez, wrote on Facebook.
While filming “Apocalypse Now” in the late 1970’s, Sheen suffered a massive heart attack and briefly halted production.
According to Estevez, Sheen is recovering well, and appreciates the thoughts and prayers coming in from across the globe.
“He is recovering beautifully, out of the ICU and is expected to not only be home for Christmas, but be 100% by the time he returns to work on season three of the Netflix series, ‘Grace and Frankie’ early next year.”
“Please lift him up and keep him in your prayers.”
