Performing Jack and the Beanstalk in Glasgow, John Barrowmen suffered a fall from a live horse leaving him injured, The BBC reports. The Doctor Who and Torchwood star was taken to hospital from the SECC Clyde Auditorium as a precautionary method. His injuries were not serious.
An SECC spokeswoman said: "During today's matinee performance of Jack and the Beanstalk, John Barrowman suffered an injury on stage and has been taken to hospital as a precaution. His understudy, Greg Barrowman, has already stepped in to finish the rest of the show." She added: "John Barrowman is completely fine. He is just a little bit bruised." In a similar accident, during the same show, Janette Tough, "Wee Jimmy" Krankie, was almost killed in an on-stage in 2004. She suffered a fractured skull after falling from a mechanical beanstalk at the Pavilion Theatre.
Barrowman recently revealed to The L.A Times that he would be "disappointed" if Captain Jack Harkness doesn't return to Doctor Who for the show's 50th anniversary. "I haven't been asked. I would love to [come back to Doctor Who] if they ask me," he stressed. He went on to say: "[Arrow producer] Andrew Kreisberg has already said if they want me in the 50th anniversary, he will give me the time off to do it. But it's not up to me."
