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 (read it here).

“In the course of shooting the scene, the director [Pascal Laugier], consistently told [Hickson] to pound harder on the glass with her fists,” the suit states. “At one point during the filming of the scene, and after being asked to increase the strength with which [she] pounded on the glass, [she] asked one of the producers and the director if it was safe to do so. That producer and the director both replied in the affirmative.”

  1. I have worked with this fine young actress. This article fails to mention that she is also a model.
    A relatively newcomer to the film industry places their trust completely to the veterans of the trade, the ones that should know better. Experience, they have plenty. Taylor,not so much.
    Had she been a seasoned veteran she may have refused,instead she asked if it was safe. She was reassured by her two bosses. She was “Directed” or should I say misdirected.
    A horror film comes to life,to reality, as a result of this “direction”.
    Taylor is extremely intelligent and had the where for all to ask, to question. This in its self is a brave thing to do in such a competitive environment. The film industry is very “yes man” driven.
    If you want to work,you do as your told. She did as she was told.
    Taylor has more ambition than anyone that I have ever met. She is a very talented singer songwriter.
    Her goals were bigger than NASA. She had the the “it” factor that everyone looks for, that all actors wished they had.
    Her beauty is obvious, but what you don’t see in her pictures is her spark,her charm, her infectious zest for life.
    Like all young girls, insecurity is a constant inner battle. Am I good enough, am I pretty enough…these questions consume most all teen girls. This is tenfold in film and modelling. Their livelihoods depend on it.
    Outwardly Taylor is very confidant, inwardly not so much.
    I, or anyone can not imagine what she has gone through. How many times she has cried in front of a mirror, how many sleepless nights she has relived that fateful day that changed her forever.
    The changes you see to her face are nothing compared to what goes on in her mind.
    Auditions are very nerve racking. They are stressful to say the least. I need say no more on that.
    After, when the phone doesn’t ring…the cycle repeats…is it because?
    Makeup and those eyes my steal your’e eyes, but if even one lumen of Taylors spark has been lost,the world has lost. I pray Taylor still has that spark,in that, was her true beauty. This is a test of her strength, the battle we can not see, a daily battle. Be strong is easy to say.
    So I say to all parties. Be strong!
    ” HEY TAYLOR, my friend, YOU ROCK, go gettem!!!!
