Remember Tom the inkeeper from Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban?
The actor who played Tom, Jim Tavaré, is in intensive care after a head-on car accident left him with serious injuries.
The 54-year-old actor’s wife posted a picture of Jim in the hospital bed, with the following caption:
“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 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.”
Jim, originally from Essex, currently resides in Los Angeles, but so far, it’s unclear where the accident took place, who was involved or what happened.
The fans have gone mad and have sent nothing but the best wishes to Jim.
Get well soon @jimtavare ,wishing all the best to tom, the inkeeper of the leaky cauldron❤⚡️
