American actor Patrick Swayze has been spotted having a smoke on the sets of his new A and E TV series 'The Beast', despite battling cancer.
Swayze, who announced in January that he has pancreatic cancer, was caught puffing away on a cigarette while talking to a crewmember, as he took a break from playing an FBI agent.
The 'Dirty Dancing' star has been a smoker for years and he has admitted to having smoked up to three packs a day, the New York Daily News reported.
But even though he is smoking, he seems to look a lot healthier these days, and not like the time when he appeared gaunt at an L.A. Lakers game in May.
Swayze had even announced in late July, "I'm a miracle, dude!"
Recent studies suggest that smoking a pack or more a day can dramatically increase a smoker's risk of developing pancreatic cancer.
