HBO has unveiled the official trailer of ‘David Holmes: The Boy Who Lived’, a documentary project focusing on the life of David Holmes. He was Daniel Radcliffe’s stunt double in the first six Harry Potter films.
Radcliffe has executively produced the documentary, which explores the tragic accident of David Holmes.
In January 2009, Holmes’ world turned upside down after suffering a serious spine injury on the sets of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. As a result, that injury left him paralyzed. He tried everything he could to get better but nothing happened. Now, he uses a wheelchair.
‘The Boy Who Lived’ will explore David Holmes’ life. After retiring from his stunt life, Holmes opened up Ripple Productions, which collaborated with Daniel Radcliffe in 2020 for the podcast ‘Cunning Stunts’. The upcoming documentary has been produced by Amy Stares (Ripple Productions), Jonathan Chinn Simon Chinn (Lightbox), and Vanessa Davies.
Radcliffe refers to Holmes as his “cool older brother” in the trailer. He also hails him by saying this about him: “He would do the most dangerous physical stuff.” Regarding the tragic accident, the actor declares that scenario “unfair”.
Helmed by Dan Hartley, the ‘David Holmes: The Boy Who Lived’ documentary has been produced by Sky and HBO Documentary Films. It will come out on Max on November 15. Indian viewers should expect to get this project on Jio Cinema. Stay tuned for more updates. Watch the trailer below!
