Harry Potter actor, Jim Tavaré, who played Tom, the owner of the Leaky Cauldron has sustained severe injuries, broken neck, a punctured lung and 15 broken ribs after a serious car accident.
His wife, Laura, wrote on his Facebook page on Tuesday, “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 has 15 broken ribs, fractures in both breastbones, a punctured lung, multiple breaks in his right leg, and a broken neck. 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.”
Tavaré appeared in Harry ‘Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban’. Trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in England, the comedian also co-wrote and starred in the BAFTA-winning series ‘The Sketch Show’.
