Former Manhunt finalist Shane Pow was involved in an accident last year, just as he was about to get his big TV break.
The 21-year-old, who was almost hit by a taxi, jammed his brakes, and his bike skidded, causing him to injure his left ankle.
While he was on MC for 5 months, he got the call offering him a role. He promptly sold off his motorcycle because it was too risky to risk hurting his face.
Pow will make his major debut in the new Channel 8 year-end blockbuster drama It Takes Two, which premieres in November.
