Harry Potter stuntman injured

Daniel Radcliffe performing a stunt in a previous Harry Potter filmA 25-year-old stuntman working on the latest Harry Potter film, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, was seriously injured Wednesday, according to UK paper The Mirror. The 25-year-old man, who doubles for the film’s star, Daniel Radcliffe, was suspended by a harness in mid-air for a scene in which Harry is flying when a planned explosion went wrong. “It is thought he may have been caught by the explosion and hit the ground very hard,” said a source. “He told crew members who went to help him he couldn’t feel anything from the waist down. Everyone is just hoping he makes a good recovery. It has come as a terrible shock.” A spokesperson for the studio said: “We can confirm a member of the Harry Potter production was injured in an accident. We are awaiting further news.”

  2. channnny • January 30, 2009 @ 1:14 PM

    oh snap!! that sucks!!
    is the movie going to end up being postponed?

  3. beepy • January 30, 2009 @ 1:27 PM

    Just another ploy to bring the withering fan base back to its feet. Jumping the shark? YUP! zZZZzZZZZZ Oh no wake up fans!

  4. Mary • January 30, 2009 @ 4:22 PM

    You people are idiots the stuntman falls and can’t feel anything below his waist and your worried whether or not the film is going to be delayed. Who cares lets just hope this guy gets to walk again.

  5. Kevin • January 30, 2009 @ 6:50 PM

    You said excactly what I was thinking Mary….who cares if the movie is going to be delayed or not, this poor guy got seriously injured. I as big a Harry Potter fan as the next guy but this guys well being should be the first thing of concern.

  6. Rita • January 30, 2009 @ 7:02 PM

    What is the matter with everyboby, has everyone become so cynical, that we can’t show compassion any longer?? Our thoughts should be with the stuntman that got hurt. Our well wishes should be directed towards his recovery, not whether this will delay the movie!

  7. Nancy • January 30, 2009 @ 7:21 PM

    First of all Mary…WHO are the “you people who are all idiots” for asking if the movie is going to be delayed? Only 1 person asked if it was going to be delayed…so I guess you’re calling ALL 3 people who commented before you “idiots”..???

    Channnny is entitled to her/his opinion too and did say that this accident “sucks”..at least she/he wasn’t nearly as rude as you!!

    Anyways, I hope this guy fully recovers. It’s weird how Daniel is the one who makes millions of dollars yet this guy’s job is to take all the falls for him…literally!

  8. Jen • January 30, 2009 @ 9:45 PM

    it may suck, but like it or not, that us the life of a stunt double.

  9. quinn • January 31, 2009 @ 12:41 AM

    Jen that is not the life of a stunt double. There has always got to be safety in the work place no matter what the work. I know accidents happen but from what I heard this accident didn’t have to happen. Negligence for the all mighty dollar, that sucks.

    nancy, i bet ur hot

  11. stan • January 31, 2009 @ 8:39 AM

    in responce to Nancy, wow, mary accidentally uses a plural instead of a singular term…her entire arguement must be COMPLETELY invalid?!?!?!…clearly not

    mary DOES have a good point,the more serious issue here is the fact that a man may be parylized for the rest of his life, and people…SORRY a PERSON! (though just because one person voiced the question doesnt mean many people arent wondering it) whether or not the movie is going to be delayed

    yes, channy is entitled to her opinion, but mary never said that she wasnt..also im quite sure that mary tried to give the impression on being rude in order to make a point:
    and the point being that channys comment was as inapropriate as standing in a vets office with a dog that was hit by a car and asking whether or not he would still be able to carry the newspaper in for you

  12. stan • January 31, 2009 @ 8:47 AM

    i also forgot to answer in responce to NANCY’s final questions; i don’t find it funny at all the daniel makes more money, first, he puts far more hours in doing all the acting scenes and second when seeing a movie, you are there, for the most part, to watch the actors. i personally could not sit for an hour and a half watching a stunt man

  13. Vicki • January 31, 2009 @ 9:57 AM

    It seems to me that Channy may be truly shocked and saddened by the stuntman’s accident. It’s just that the message refers briefly to that fact and then moves on to another concern (the movie’s release date) without a transition… that “in-between” line that says “And now for something much less important but I’m just wondering…” Some people then assume Channy is heartless because the two concerns seem equated, whereas maybe Channy just didn’t feel like writing every one of his/her thoughts out.

    Some of us (not me, LOL) like to put our thoughts in a nutshell.

  14. sk8tergirl • January 31, 2009 @ 11:40 AM

    Poor guy… I hope that he will be okay.

  15. Jo-Anne • January 31, 2009 @ 3:19 PM

    I hope this guy makes a complete recovery…Stan, love your comment about not sitting for an hour and a half to watch a stuntman – very witty!

  16. Nancy • January 31, 2009 @ 3:22 PM

    Stan: I NEVER said that Mary’s statement “must be COMPLETELY invalid”, did I? I also NEVER said that Mary didn’t have a good point. What I am saying, is that if Channnney chooses not to express a whole lot of concern about this guys health and does express more concern for the movie, doesn’t mean that her/his opinion is any lesser than anyone else’s. Oh please, don’t write back to me and say “Mary never said Channnney’s opinion was any lesser”! Because when Mary called Channey an “idiot”, that pretty much told me that Mary considers Channnney’s comment “lesser”. It’s not what Mary wanted or expects to hear (and obviously not Mary alone). Well, that’s too bad, because everyone is different and the world doesn’t revolve around those who have the same opinions as ‘Mary’!! I only have one problem with Mary’s comment….and that is when she refers to someone as being an “idiot” for stating THEIR opinion! Next, how do you know Channnney is a “her”? And you said “Channnney’s comment was inappropriate”…inappropriate for who? Because it’s not what you or Mary WANT to hear? So you side with Mary, who thinks it is “appropriate” to go around telling people they are “idiots”? Next, you “also forgot to answer in response to NANCY’s final questions”…?? That was “MY OPINION” on the topic and there was no “question” in it to be answered, but you did give YOUR opinion and it is not quite what I wnated to hear…so can I call you an “idiot” now?

    As for Anonymous….THANKS!! 😉

  17. Nancy • January 31, 2009 @ 3:44 PM

    Also Stan, I said I find it “weird” that Daniel makes the millions ($)…..YOU said “funny”, not me!

  18. Nancy • January 31, 2009 @ 3:46 PM

    Oh sorry Jo-Anne….you have something brown on the side of your lip AGAIN!! LMAO!

  19. stan • January 31, 2009 @ 4:29 PM

    Well Nancy,
    i think you should again lick that brown stuff off. though jo-anne might have gotten some smeared on her lip doing a little to much a $$ kissing, i think the actual flavour is more to your liking.

  20. Nancy • January 31, 2009 @ 5:09 PM

    Why, it sounds like you are a little bitter there Stan! Did I strike a nerve by pointing out the truth to you?

  21. Nancy • January 31, 2009 @ 5:10 PM

    Oh, and for the record, you will NEVER find brown stuff anywhere near these lips of mine!

  22. .. • January 31, 2009 @ 6:17 PM

    Stan, that’s a whole lotta “blah blah blah” over a comment that had nothing to do with you in the first place. let people defend themselves, mary obviously can type.

  23. Nancy • January 31, 2009 @ 7:04 PM

    Well, I’m guilty of the “blah blah” too. I’m sure Channnney (sorry, I’ve been putting that ‘e’ in there all along), Channnny can defend her/himself too, it just really p’s me off that people consider “their beliefs” to be EVERYONE’S BELIEFS and in trying to make themselves out to be such caring saints they name call and bash their way through the crowd!

  24. stan • January 31, 2009 @ 9:37 PM

    name calling…hmmm…you mean like people who call others brown nosers when they agree with someone who disagrees with them??.

    i agree nancy, those people need to grow up

  25. .. • January 31, 2009 @ 10:14 PM

    u sure do stan.

  26. Nancy • January 31, 2009 @ 10:22 PM

    No Stan…”brown noser” as in Jo-Anne…cause she only smooches the derrieres of those who disagree with me…ALWAYS! Doesn’t matter what the topic is; doesn’t matter if it’s right or wrong…as long as they disagree with me…gives me every right to call her that..and she is one!

  27. Jo-Anne • February 1, 2009 @ 11:58 AM

    wow, Stan, 7 Nancy comments in a row…more than a few directed at – yes, me again!

    So so angry I agree with someone and not her???? What a surprise.

    how sad is that? and worded in such an intelligent(??) fashion….

  28. stan • February 1, 2009 @ 12:16 PM

    … you may want to heed your own advice about other peoples conversations

  29. You people are a WASTE of my time! • February 1, 2009 @ 1:27 PM

    Better yet, get jobs. I’m sick of supporting people that do nothing but sit on line all day blowing whatever the government took from my paycheck on crap. I work all day so you guys can sit around sharing your opinions on these worldly events. What a waste.

  30. tributegirl • February 1, 2009 @ 3:28 PM

    Not exactly. Many of us work full time +, this site is just a fun little “down time” thing.
    Jo, I wouldn’t be so quick to jump on Stan’s bandwagon if I were you. You might just notice that he’s not been quite so nice to you either.

  31. Nancy • February 1, 2009 @ 4:30 PM

    Ah, she thinks I’m “so angry” because she agrees with someone else and not me. LOL. She just doesn’t get it! I could CARE LESS if someone disagrees with me…if that were the case, would I only be jumping on you, Jo? Far from it! You don’t even care about an opinion, you just jump on the back of the first person who disagrees with me ON EVERY, EVERY ARTICLE! And then you wonder why I act the way I do towards you. Well, once again, I just let you know, but we ALL know you’re in denial so I’m sure I’ll end up having to explain it to you again at some point!

    As for you, ‘You people are a WASTE of my time’…you don’t f-ing support me so shut the hell up!! Go whine your BS federal tax problems to the government…cause I probably pay in just as much as the next guy!

  32. You people are a WASTE of my time! • February 1, 2009 @ 5:01 PM

    Nancy on February 1, 2009 4:30 pm

    Oh but I do believe I am supporting you….if not totally, then somehow through whatever system or benefit you and most of the people here are on. I’ve just taken the time to go through all the posts and comments that have been made recently as well as those in the archives and can’t help but notice that the same old people post the same old stuff….

    If any of you are actually employed, (and I can tell from your grammar, choice of words and topic of discussions that if do have one, it’s at some blue collar job with no access to the net) where do you people find the time to sit here posting at all hours of the day and night? I sure as hell don’t have time at work to be sitting online fighting with some nitwit over a topic that doesnt affect my life whatsoever. For that matter, I don’t even have time in my personal life to keep running back to the computer between the washer and dryer or running home from a night out to check if someone has retaliated to my last comment. I dont believe any of you work or have a life other than this pathetic little soap opera that you have going on here.

    And by tax, Im referring to income tax, not gst or pst that you are paying on your purchases. In order to pay INCOME TAX , YOU HAVE TO WORK!

  33. Nancy • February 1, 2009 @ 5:22 PM

    I DO WORK! That’s what I’m trying to tell you. YOU don’t support ME…WHATSOEVER!! So what? So I don’t go out parting and stuff…what the hell is it to you what I do with MY time? You don’t pay my bills, my home is clean, my laundry is done, kids are WELL taken care of…if this is how I choose to spend MY time, then it’s none of YOUR business! You obviously have issues with people who are in need of government assisstance…rest assured, I’m NOT one of them!!

  34. Nancy • February 1, 2009 @ 5:26 PM

    Oh, and ‘You people are a WASTE of my time!’

    You put the time of 4:30 pm on your comment but the time you posted it at Tribute says 5:01…no wonder why you have NO SPARE TIME…when it took you 31 minutes to write that! LMFAO!

  35. You people are a WASTE of my time! • February 1, 2009 @ 5:43 PM

    Actually, Workpress wouldn’t take so I had to send it a couple of times. It kept telling me that I was typing too fast and had to slow down….
    Yet here is another perfect example of your time (or should I say waste of it) for sitting there looking at my post for something to attack me with. A lesson for you, never act in anger or you just look the fool in the end.

  36. You people are a WASTE of my time! • February 1, 2009 @ 5:55 PM

    Nancy, you can calm down. I find you and your comments entertaining. Your personality is very comical to say the least. You try very hard to come off sounding all tough and put togetheralmost to the extreme. We always elaborate untruths to make sure we completely convince others. Nonetheless, it has been interesting chatting with you.

  37. Nancy • February 1, 2009 @ 6:03 PM

    I’m far from a fool. Oh, and it’s ‘WordPress’ not “workpress” and it has happened to a few of us at one point or another so don’t pat yourself on the back thinking you’re such a fast typer or anything…LOL. I’m not angry, I find it quite amusing actually, that you sit here complaining about how others spend their time and how you’re paying for all of us and you have no spare time but yet,…..here you are…spending your very busy life arguing with the ‘Welfare people’. LMAO! That’s funny!

  38. mandee • February 1, 2009 @ 6:47 PM

    hmmm….i go away for one weekend and look what happens. laugh out loud. well, its good to see you can all have fun without me 🙂 i hope the stuntman is ok, i also hope the movie isnt delayed, because man, the longer i wait, the more i care less if i never see another harry potter movie…and i loved all the other ones.

  39. You people are a WASTE of my time! • February 1, 2009 @ 6:51 PM

    Hey, I’ve got the whole day to waste! And thanks for the correction. I’m glad they have you here straightening everyone out. Are you looking for a pat on the back from the rest of your clan? If not, why mention it? There isnt a page anywhere on this site that you havent corrected someone.

    Okay Nancy, I have to admit that I just came on to see how everyone is doing on Tribute, but couldnt help myself and had to put the bait out there for you. Im glad you are still spunky as ever and to be honest, have missed bantering with you! I knew my name and comments would be too much for you to pass on. Now that I have a little more time on my hands, I am looking forward to reading your comments.

    Lots of love,

    Gina lol 🙂

  40. tributegirl • February 1, 2009 @ 7:01 PM

    Wow, for someone who claims to have no spare time at work or in his/her personal life, “You people…” sure has been on here a lot today. Must be a rare day off work, and the personal life isn’t offering anything in the way of excitement today.
    Just fyi, “You people…”, the regular posters on here work for a living, and as far as I’ve heard to date, none are blue collar workers, not that that really has anything to do with anything, blue collar workers pay INCOME TAX as well. I’ve been posting on this site for a long time now, because I enjoy it, and the regulars have occasionally talked about work, family, etc, and I don’t recall anyone saying that they are on any kind of social assistance. So before you go running your mouth off saying that YOU are supporting us, maybe you could do a little research on here.
    Jo? Not asking for a truce or anything, but since you’ve said you work two jobs, I’m sure we can all work together on this one?

  42. tributegirl • February 1, 2009 @ 7:07 PM

    Sorry, Gina! Your 6:51 comment was not on there when I posted my 7:01 comment!

  43. Gina • February 1, 2009 @ 7:30 PM

    Vicki on February 1, 2009 7:24 pm

    hahaha Well said!

    I meant no offence to anyone here; It was actually in very poor taste. I was setting the bait for Nancy. Sorry if I’ve offended anyone. Again my oppologies to all on Tribute.

    You people are a WASTE of my time!

  44. Vicki • February 1, 2009 @ 7:34 PM

    Classy apology, Gina! Accepted,and thanks for the compliment too:)

  45. Nancy • February 1, 2009 @ 7:50 PM

    Hey Gina, how come you’re not blue? So you have some extra time on your hands nowadays do you? Well, get a job…I’m sick of supporting you! LMAO. Glad to have you back! It gets tiring on this merry-go-round with Jo-Anne!

  46. Gina • February 1, 2009 @ 8:22 PM


    Well, I wanted to be blue, but youaremighty is not working right now lol I will have to find something fitting for you.

    I thought I would check on you guys and couldn’t stop myself; I had to try to get your blood boiling. I have been feeling rather fiesty, so no offense if I rip you apart? I have been running back to the computer “between the washer & dryer” to see your remarks. Yes I’ve noticed you two going on a few rounds and I am thinking that I might join….just have to wait for “one small wrong remark” so I can rip you guys apart.


  47. Gina • February 1, 2009 @ 8:23 PM
