Olivia Wilde, who plays Thirteen on Fox’s "House," will be taking a break from the series next season, reports EW.com’s The Ausiello Files.
Wilde will be shooting a role in the science-fiction film "Cowboys & Aliens." As a result, she’ll appear at the start of next season on "House" and then will be absent for a period. The movie’s production is expected to overlap with the seventh season of "House" by at least two months.
This week’s season finale of the program hinted at her future absence, when in the last minutes of the show Thirteen said she’d be taking a leave of absence from the hospital.
