Gordon Pinsent resting after collapse

TORONTO (CP) _ Veteran actor Gordon Pinsent was resting at home Tuesday, a day after collapsing at a party for the new Sarah Polley film Away From Her.

"He’s fine. He’ll have to take it easy for a day or two," his wife, Charmaine King, said in an interview.

"He’d been doing too much work for the last 10 days or so, promoting the film. But he’s fine."

The film, which had its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, is Polley’s directorial debut. Based on a short story by Alice Munro, it chronicles the heart-wrenching decisions faced by an aging couple (played by Pinsent and Julie Christie) after the wife begins to suffer from dementia.

Pinsent, 76, is a companion of the Order of Canada and a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. He worked in theatre as a teenager and moved on to roles in radio drama, television and film.

King said doctors told Pinsent he was dehydrated. He stayed overnight in hospital.
