Hobbit Extra on the mend.
A few days ago we reported that Jeffery Hawkes, the hobbit extra injured in a car/train accident, had suffered a serious accident. We’ve heard from his friend Inger that he is doing well. “Awake, but still on the mend. Has had a lot of surgery last week on his arm. His leg has been amputated below the leg.”
Inger gave us an update today: “He is looking a heck of a lot better than last week. Unfortunately he has also broken his other ankle so getting around will be a mish for him for a while.”
Inger told us that Jeffrey played Pippin’s double as well as a party hobbit, and he was Pippin when he’s escaping the farmer in the corn field.
Inger Vos has agreed to accept e-mail “get well” wishes, and convey them to Mr. Hawkes.
You can send your get-well emails for Jeffery to Inger.Vos@Waikato-Times.co.nz
Thanks to Altaira for the idea.Posted in Old Special Reports on April 22, 2002 by Tehanu
