You may not instantly recognise Taylor Hickson’s face, but the 20-year-old was on the cusp of becoming the next ‘big thing’ in Hollywood.
The Canadian actress has made appearances in Deadpool, alongside Ryan Reynolds, and feel-good teen flick Everything, Everything.
But an on-set injury she sustained while filming horror film Ghostland, due for release later this year, has been “debilitating” for her career, and she’s now suing the production company responsible.
According to Deadline, during filming in December 2016, Taylor was encouraged to pound on a door, her face right next to a glass pane.
“In the course of shooting the scene, the director [Pascal Laugier], consistently told [Hickson] to pound harder on the glass with her fists,” Taylor’s lawsuit, filed last week, states.
