Spider-Man stunt actor walking again after 30ft fallDecember 27th, 2010 - 3:27 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Dec 27 (ANI): The fourth actor who was injured on the set of the trouble-plagued Broadway musical ‘Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark’, is now recovering.
A stunt actor who fell 30 feet while playing Spider-Man on Broadway is walking again, and his father said that he couldn’t wait to return to the role despite injuries that have him confined to the intensive care unit.
According to the actor’s father Tim Tierney, Christopher walked last week for the first time since his fall during performance of ‘Spider-Man’ and was spending Christmas with his mother and brother in the hospital while recovering from back surgery.
Julie Taymor, the director and co-writer of the 65 million dollars production, visited the injured actor in the hospital on Christmas Eve, Tierney said
“They’re eagerly awaiting his return,” Fox News quoted the actor’s father said from his home in Portsmouth, N.H.
“He just felt so blessed to be part of this whole creative process, and he just cannot wait to get back and perform in the show.”
Tim said he believes his son will regain close to full mobility after recovering from a roster of injuries that included a hairline skull fracture, four broken ribs, a bruised lung, internal bleeding and cracks in three lumbar vertebrae. (ANI)
