Canadian actress sues film company over injury
Face off
Actress Taylor Hickson, who suffered a facial injury when she crashed through a glass door while filming the indie horror movie Ghostland in Canada, has filed a lawsuit against the film’s production company, Incident Productions.

Hickson, 20, fell through a glass door while on the set of the movie in December 2016. She claims the film’s director Pascal Laugier told her to pound harder on glass during the “emotionally-charged” scene. It suddenly smashed, causing Hickson to fall through the shattered glass, which cut her face and upper body.

She has now filed a lawsuit against Incident Productions, the company behind the film, claiming a loss of income as a result of the disfiguring injury. Hickson, who also appeared in popular franchise Deadpool, was rushed to hospital where she needed 70 stitches for a gash down her cheek. Her lawyers shared horrific images of the injury as Hickson lay in her hospital bed.

The lawsuit claims she may require further plastic surgery to repair the scars. In a twist of irony, the film poster for Ghostland features a woman with a fractured face. It is due to be released in France next week.
