A DOCUMENTARY executive produced by Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe about his Leigh stunt double who was paralysed while working on one of the films has premiered in London.

David Holmes: The Boy Who Lived, is described as a “coming-of-age story” about the stuntman, who was a teenage gymnast when he was selected to play Radcliffe’s double in the first film, when the young actor was just 11.

For the next decade, the pair worked together and formed a close bond before an accident on the set of the penultimate film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: part one, that left Holmes paralysed with a debilitating spinal injury.

Directed by Dan Hartley, the film will feature personal footage shot over the last decade, behind-the-scenes material from the Leigh man’s stunt work, and also scenes of his life now.

Interviews from Radcliffe, friends, family and former crew will also be featured.

Speaking to BBC Radio Essex presenter Sonia Watson at the premiere at 8 Northumberland Avenue on Thursday night, David said: “Well in life, I’ve had the most extreme highs and the most extreme lows, and I’m fortunate enough to be able to ride those waves instead of getting swept away.”

David Holmes: The Boy Who Lived will be available on demand on Sky Documentaries and streaming service Now from November 18.
