Actress Taylor Hickson Sues Producers Over Disfiguring Injury

Actress Taylor Hickson, who suffered a gruesome facial injury when she crashed through a glass door while filming the indie horror pic Ghostland in Canada, has filed a lawsuit against the film’s production company, Incident Productions.

Hickson, who’d turned 19 just days before the December 2016 accident in Winnipeg, Manitoba, 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 Friday with the Queen’s Bench in Winnipeg
...
While filming another take, the suit states, “The glass shattered, causing [her] head and upper body to fall through the door and shards of glass. As a result of the incident, [she] badly cut the left side of her face” and was rushed to the hospital, where she received about 70 stitches.
...
Ironically, key art for the film — which is set for theatrical release next week in France — features the broken and slashed image of a young woman’s face.

That's brutal. Poor kid.

I had it look her up since it said she was in Deadpool. Pretty minor role, but it was a speaking role with a character name, not just Teenage Girl 1 like the other girls in that scene.
