The 21-year-old Brit was forced to hobble across the red carpet at the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 premiere in London’s Leicester Square with his left leg in a protective cast.
The star was taken to hospital on Tuesday (09Nov10) after hurting his ankle while in Dublin, Ireland, where he is shooting scenes for the forthcoming TV series Camelot.
But Campbell Bower has found an upside to his injury – he was rushed past busy queues while flying into the British capital for the boy wizard bash.
In a post on his Twitter.com page, he writes: “Just got wheeled through Dublin airport. Got to skip all the lines. Things are looking up… Crap my leg hurts.”
