A Canadian starlet whose face was disfigured while shooting a scary film in Winnipeg is suing its producers.
Taylor Hickson declares in a lawsuit submitted last week with the Court of Queen’s Bench that the Winnipeg-based Incident Productions Inc. was negligent in taking sensible actions to ensure her safety.
The suit claims she suffered a facial injury when she crashed through a glass door while filming the indie job Ghostland, likewise understood as Incident in a Ghost Land.
The 20-year-old, who resides in Kelowna, B.C., is looking for damages for lost income and future loss of earnings, along with damages for psychological distress and legal costs.
The suit says she was carrying out a mentally charged scene in December 2016 when the director asked her to put her face beside a pane of glass in a door while pounding on the glass with her fists. The match states the glass shattered, triggering Hickson to fall through the door and suffer a bad cut to her face.
None of the claims have been tested in court. Hickson’s lawyer Jason Harvey states Incident Productions Inc. has yet to react to the claims.
