Injured ‘Spider-Man’ actor walking again after surgery

NEW YORK - A stunt actor who fell 30 feet while playing Spider-Man on Broadway is walking again, and his father said Saturday that he can’t wait to return to the role despite injuries that have him confined to the intensive care unit. Christopher Tierney walked Friday for the first time since his fall during Monday’s performance of “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark’’ and was spending Christmas with his mother and brother in the hospital while recovering from back surgery, Tim Tierney told The Associated Press.

The show - the most expensive ever on Broadway - has been plagued by technical glitches, money woes and three other injuries. “They’re eagerly awaiting his return,” the actor’s father said from his home in Portsmouth, N.H. “He just felt so blessed to be part of this whole creative process, and he just cannot wait to get back and perform in the show.”
