"Gimli" Injured on Set of New Movie - Internet Movie Data Base

IMDb reports, "Lord Of The Rings star John Rhys-Davies is in hospital after a stage wall fell on him during filming of his latest movie. The actor, who plays Dwarf Lord Gimli in the Tolkien film trilogy, was filming La Femme Musketeer in Croatia when the incident happened. He was taken to hospital suffering from head injuries and a broken forearm. The accident happened just hours after Rhys-Davies, 58, gave an interview in which he said he avoided all danger on set and insisted on having a stuntman for every action scene, however minor. The piece of scenery fell on him while on location at an old Castle in the western Croatian town of Pazin. A spokesperson for the Croatian co-production company Jadran-film said they were hoping the actor might be fit to return for some scenes in a few weeks time."
