Sometimes playing a smarty-pants action heroine on TV comes with a price.
Piper Perabo injured her knee on the set of her new USA series, Covert Affairs, in which she plays a CIA newbie who's called up for active duty before she's finished training, a network rep confirms to E! News.
Apparently the injury wasn't serious, but Perabo was taken to a nearby hospital to get treatment. She's expected to make a full recovery.
Either way, it sounds as if the CIA doesn't take it easy on its freshmen agents.
Here's hoping the only thing snapped on set was Piper's picture.
