HBO has released the first trailer for David Holmes: The Boy Who Lived.

David Holmes: The Boy Who Lived is a new documentary about a stuntman who was seriously injured during the production of 2010’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1. The trailer, shared on HBO’s YouTube page, sees Daniel Radcliffe and others talk about what occurred on set that day before it then dives into Holmes’ life after the accident.

“It is unfair,” Radcliffe says in the trailer. “He shouldn’t have had to do any of that In my mind, Dave’s indestructible. This terrible thing happened to Dave, but I don’t want to talk as if his life is a tragedy. The way his life has affected the lives of people around him means that it is the furthest thing from that imaginable.”
