Actor Keeps Clumsy Streak At Bay

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – British actor Sean Maguire is more accident prone than the average man.

Maguire – known for Meet The Spartans – admits to being a “bit of a clumsy idiot,” and adds, “I’ve had more accidents than most people, unless you count Evel Knievel.

Maguire is hoping to keep his clumsy streak under control on his new fantasy/comedy series, Krod Mandoon, in which he plays a reluctant freedom fighter in an ancient realm.

However, action scenes that include fighting, horseback riding, and sword handling sometimes lend themselves to his clumsiness.

He laughs, “I’ve smacked myself on the back of the head A LOT while trying to pull out my sword. My pants also ripped on the first day of filming.”

But while Maguire believes he can pull off this gig injury- free, his friends back in London aren’t so sure.

He says, “They’ve started a poll on what appendages I’ll break in the process!”

Krod Mandoon premieres Thursday (Apr. 9) on Comedy Central.
