Back in July, during the New York promotional tour for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Dan Radcliffe told Live with Regis and Kelly that he was injured while filming a fight scene for Deathly Hallows when a stuntman hit a chair Dan was holding and he ended up with a split lip.

Further to that injury, Dan stated in a recent interview with French magazine One that he also received a black eye during that shoot.

Until now nothing really bad happened to me, only a few scratches. But I'm happy because I finally got a big black eye during the shooting of Deathly Hallows. I was shooting a scene where Harry is fighting a huge snake. As you know, the Harry Potter films are big productions, so instead of an actual snake in front of me, our stunt coordinator held a long stick with a boxing glove at the end. He got me by surprise and hit me in the face. The blow was strong enough to knock me out! I saw the scene on slow motion afterwards, and it looks like I get hit like a real boxer. Really classy!

Thanks to Gazette Du Sorcier for the translation.
