Olivia Wilde to Take Hiatus from House

by at . Comments

Lost amdist the raw emotion of this week's House season finale, specifically the scenes with that focused on Huddy, was the departure of Thirteen.

She simply dropped off a note in House's office, implied to Taub that her Huntington's had flared up, and walked out the door.

Will we ever see Olivia Wilde on the show again? Yes, producer Katie Jacobs says. But she'll miss a chunk of the seventh season to film the movie Cowboys & Aliens.

“Olivia will be there at the very beginning of the season, and then she will not be there for a period of time,” Katie Jacobs told EW.com.

Shooting of the western sci-fi is expected to overlap with season seven of House by at least two months. It also stars Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, and Sam Rockwell.

“The two things - the dates that she was going to be away and the story line [we wanted to tell] - worked out,” said Jacobs. “When the story unfolds, it will [all make] sense.”

As for the House and Cuddy romance? Read what Jacobs had to say about that HERE.

Thank god... I cannot stand 13... I think Olivia Wilde is a terrible actress in the show. Cameron needs to get back on ASAP. Hopefully this will allow it.
