The English comedian, who played Tom the Innkeeper in the 2004 film Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, has also 15 ribs and punctured a lung. He has also undergone two blood transfusions and requires surgery, the Mirror reports. 

His wife shared the news on Facebook, at the request of the Leaky Cauldron staple, along with a photo of Jim in a neck brace.

"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," she wrote, "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."

Wishing you a quick recovery Jim! <3
