One of the actors in the Harry Potter series is recovering from serious injuries following a car crash.
Jim Tavare is in intensive care after the head-on collision broke his neck and punctured a lung.
Tavare, who was in Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban, also suffered 15 broken ribs, a broken leg and breastbone fractures.
His wife Laura posted a picture on Facebook of the Essex-born actor lying in a hospital bed giving the thumbs up.
She wrote: "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 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."
Tavare played Tom the Innkeeper in the third Harry Potter film, also co-writing and starring in the ITV series The Sketch Show.
He spends most of his time in Los Angeles.
