The Hollywood actor Jim Tavaré, who appeared in the film Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, is in intensive care after a head-on car crash left him with a broken neck and punctured lung.
The 54 years old actor also suffered 15 broken ribs, breaks in his right leg and a fractured breastbone, his wife said in a post on his Facebook account. Her message did not give details about where the crash had taken place, although the actor spends most of his time in Los Angeles.
“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,” she wrote.
“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 two 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.”
