‘Harry Potter’ Actor Jim Tavaré Seriously Injured in Horrific Car Crash
Earlier this week, "Harry Potter" actor Jim Tavaré was involved in a serious car crash that has left him with a broken neck.
Tavaré suffered 15 broken ribs, a punctured lung, a broken right leg, and fractured breastbones in a head-on collision on Monday. His wife Laura gave an update on Facebook, writing, "This is Laura here. Now that his family have been informed, Jim has asked me to let you all know that he was involved in a serious car accident yesterday, a head on collision. He's currently in ICU intensive care.”
"He's had 2 blood transfusions so far and is about to go in for his first surgery. This is for real, not a movie role. Please hold some good thoughts for him as he fights his way out of this,” she added.
Aside from playing the Leaky Cauldron innkeeper and the resident hunchback in the “Harry Potter” movies, Jim, 54, has starred on the BAFTA-winning TV series “The Sketch Show.”
