My Family star Kris Marshall recovering from car crash


Recommended Posts

Kris Marshall, the star of My Family, is recovering from head injuries in hospital today after being hit by a car, police confirmed.




The 34-year-old actor rose to fame as Nick in the BBC comedy, which co-stars Robert Lindsay, and is currently the star of BT's broadband ads. He was out with friends in Bristol on Saturday night when he was hit by a car outside a pub.


He was taken to Bristol Royal Infirmary where a scan revealed his head injuries were not life-threatening.


A spokesman for Avon and Somerset police said: “There was a collision between a car and pedestrian shortly before 1am on Sunday.


“It happened in St Augustine’s Parade in Bristol City Centre. A man in his 30s was taken to hospital with head injuries not considered to be life-threatening.


“Police spoke to the driver of the car involved, which was a VW Polo. He stopped immediately after the collision and we are looking into how it happened. He was not a drink driver.”


The actor was out drinking with friends when the accident happened, The Sun reported today.


Marshall, who lives in Windsor, won fame for his role in My Family and was recently better known for playing the toyboy boyfriend of a single mother in the current BT adverts.


He also appeared in the film Love, Actually, and as detective Luke Stone in the drama Murder City, with Amanda Donahoe.


His new film Hotel Caledonia, is a British horror comedy, in which he plays a seasonal worker in a remote Scottish hotel.


Marshall was crowned Best Comedy Newcomer six years ago at the British Comedy Awards
