TORONTO — Actor Tim Curry made a rare public appearance Sunday night — nearly three years after suffering a stroke.

The 67-year-old showed up for a Tony Awards viewing party in Los Angeles in a wheelchair.

“I’m doing well,” he told Los Angeles Magazine, which noted his speech has slowed slightly.

Curry said keeping his sense of humour is “absolutely vital.”

“It’s not tough to maintain,” he said. “It is just part of my DNA.”

Curry, who is perhaps best known for playing Frank-N-Furter in the 1975 cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show, suffered a stroke in July 2012. His condition wasn’t made public until May 2013.
