Harvey Spencer Stephens, who played the son of the devil Damien in the 1976 film The Omen, faces jail after attacking two cyclists in a road rage incident. He is due to be sentenced on Friday 13.

The former child star has admitted to two counts of ABH and one of criminal damage after hitting two cyclists and damaging one of their helmets on Toys Hill in Kent last year, and will be sentenced at the Maidstone Crown Court. Although Harvey is no longer an actor, he has previously opened up about his experience in the horror film.

Harvey played Damien in 1976

In a 2007 interview, he said: "It was good, but I was only five, a lot of it went over my head. It wasn't a big deal. It was good while it lasted." He also had a cameo in the film remake, which was released in 2006. In an interview about making the film, the producer Harvey Bernhard revealed that he had been unable to track Harvey done after losing touch, and that The Omen was the only film the actor appeared in.

Speaking about a documentary on the film in an interview with LA Times, he said: "I saw him nine years ago. He was handsome and a wonderful boy. He was tall and he was rather beautiful. It was the only picture he ever made." Executive producer Kevin Burns said: "I am sure he is still around out there. Every once in a while he has surfaced to give an interview. We really tried to find him. Of course, right after this show comes out, out he'll pop!"
