Jim Tavaré, the actor who played Tom - 'The Leaky Cauldron' owner in the Harry Potter series, is in intensive care after a severe car crash. The 54 year old suffered from a broken neck, 15 broken ribs, a broken leg, as well as acquiring a punctured lung and fractured breastbones.


The head on collision, which most likely took place in Los Angeles, has left Tavaré in ICU intensive care awaiting surgery following two blood transfusions. 

His wife Laura informed his fans on Facebook about the accident, along with a picture of Tavaré giving the thumbs up. 

She wrote in the post “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 2 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.”

Our thoughts are with Tavaré and his family.
