John Barrowman Thrown From Horse During Glasgow Performance

jackbeanstalk3Torchwood hottie John Barrowman is recovering after falling from a horse Friday during a Glasgow performance of Jack and the Beanstalk.

“I just felt the horse jitter underneath me, then the back end lifted up and then the next thing I knew I was in the air. I landed hard in the middle of the stage,” Barrowman told BBC Scotland.

The out actor tried to finish the show, a traditional UK pantomime, but the injury was too severe. “I got back on with the show, but the shooting pain just went through my legs and my back. I said to the audience “ladies and gentlemen, I have to stop the show, I need to be checked out. Then I went round the back and basically collapsed and I was put in a stretcher and strapped up. It was quite scary.”

The show went on, though, with the understudy—Barrowman’s nephew Greg—taking over for Uncle John.

      Pantomime horses are known to buck.

      WOW! The maintenance man in my building is out gay. The other day he dropped his

      broom and bruised his right little toe. How about an article on it?

      @hf2hvit: How often does your building maintenance man get on international television and crusade for equality? When he starts, maybe Queerty will do an article on him. Meanwhile, toss off.

      @hf2hvit: I dunno, call TLC, Bravo, and LOGO. He might very well be able to turn his harrowing experience into a reality TV show.
