Harry Potter stars visit injured stuntman

Daniel Radcliffe and Tom FeltonHarry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe and co-star Tom Felton, who plays Harry’s arch enemy Draco Malfoy, visited David Holmes, the stuntman who was injured on the set of the latest Harry Potter film, in hospital on Tuesday. Holmes, 25, fell to the ground while rehearsing a stunt that involved explosives for Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows last month. According to the Daily Mail, Holmes is receiving specialist spinal care after losing feeling in his hands and legs. Production on the film resumed this week after a Health and Safety Executive did a thorough check of the set and announced it was safe to continue.

    mandee: Well, Dan just got back from New York, but I’m not sure about Tom.

    I think it’s great that they visited the stuntman. And I hope he has a speedy recovery.

    I don’t know mandee, I think the Obama girls were invited just as a publicity stunt, but I don’t really think this is. Could be though, but I just don’t think so.
    nat, love your last sentence! Hilarious!

    Sure hope this guy is going to fully recover.Norma what does 40 look like, does it look like 30 or does 30 look like 40? Is it GOOD or is it BAD. In other words who cares .

    Whether it was a month or more, I still think it was great that they took the time to visit this poor guy!
