Deadpool actress Taylor Hickson is suing her latest film’s production company after allegedly suffering a gruesome on set injury that she says is debilitating to her career.
According to reports on People.com, Taylor suffered a gruesome facial injury when she crashed through a glass door while filming the horror movie Ghostland in Canada. She was performing “an emotionally charged scene” in which the director had asked her to pound harder and harder on the door, with her face right next to the glass pane, according to the suit filed with the Queen’s Bench in Winnipeg.
Despite allegedly being assured by Laugier and a producer that it was safe to pound on the glass, “the glass shattered, causing (her) head and upper body to fall through the door and (on to) shards of glass,” the suit says. Attempts to reach Laugier for comment were not immediately successful.
“As a result of the incident, (Taylor) badly cut the left side of her face,” and was rushed to the hospital, where she received about 70 stitches. Incident Productions, according to the lawsuit “knew or ought to have known of the dangerous situation” Hickson was put in. “The injury was reasonably foreseeable and was caused solely by the negligence and/or breach of contract by the defendant in that it failed in exercising the duty of care it owed to the plaintiff,” the suit adds.
