Robby Benson on recovering from heart surgery

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: Actor, writer, director Robby Benson, who underwent open heart surgery at the Cleveland Clinic in late May, is on the mend and then some.

Pensacola, Fla., talk show personality Taris Savell tells us that the family considers his surgery totally successful, and in fact, that he was up and walking around two days afterward, although still in pain. Born with a heart defect, the performer who rose to fame in such films as “Ode to Billy Joe,” and continues to be heard as the voice of the beast in Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast,” has been through heart surgery multiple times.
