Verne Troyer, best known for his role as Mini-Me in two of Mike Myers' Austin Powers films, suffered a seizure at the Heart of Texas Comic Con in Waco on Saturday, and was hospitalized as a result.

The actor has posted a short clip via Twitter, however, to assure fans he is doing just fine now.

"I'm sure you guys have heard some news that I went to the hospital," Verne Troyer said. "But I just want to reassure you and let everyone know that I am fine."

"I was there for maybe a couple hours, did some tests, and now I'm here at the hotel and I plan on signing again tomorrow," he added.

A rep for Verne Troyer told The Hollywood Reporter that even the trip to the hospital was a precautionary one, and that all of the actor's test results came back just fine.

In addition to appearing in the Austin Powers films, Verne Troyer had a role in Mike Myers' film The Love Guru in 2008. In 2005 he appeared on the reality show The Surreal Life.

Fans are no doubt relieved to learn that Verne Troyer is just fine. And hopefully he was able to return to the Heart of Texas Comic Con in Waco, Texas on Sunday.
