London, Feb 12 (ANI): Brit actor Daniel Radcliffe took time out from his busy schedule to visit his Harry Potter stunt double who was convalescing in a London hospital after he suffered injuries while performing on the set.
David Holmes, 25, the stunt double, suffered serious back injury after falling from a harness at Leavesden Studios, in Hertfordshire, England, while filming a flying scene during rehearsal for new movie Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, reports the Daily Express.
He was recently transferred to a specialist spinal unit at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in north London where he underwent surgery.
