Potter Stars Visit Injured Stunt Double
British actor DANIEL RADCLIFFE has taken time out of his busy schedule to visit a London hospital to see the HARRY POTTER stuntdouble who was recently injured in a horrific onset accident.
David Holmes was admitted to hospital last month (Jan09) with a serious back injury after falling from a harness at Leavesden Studios, in Hertfordshire, England, while filming new movie Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
The 25-year-old, who steps in for dangerous scenes for Radcliffe, was hurt when a rehearsal for a flying scene went wrong. He was recently transferred to a specialist spinal unit at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in north London where he underwent surgery.
Radcliffe, who was in New York at the time of the accident, recently flew back to the U.K. and went to visit his pal in the medical facility on Tuesday (11Feb09).
Tom Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy in the blockbuster movies, joined Radcliffe in visiting Holmes, and was accompanied by his girlfriend Jade Olivia, who was pictured crying outside the hospital after the emotional visit.
The film set at the British studio recently reopened following a brief closure following the shocking accident.
