Stuntwoman Olivia Jackson Needs Arm Amputated After Accident

Olivia Jackson, who has worked as a stunt double on films such as Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Mad Max: Fury Road, will need her arm amputated after an accident on set.

The 34-year-old stuntwoman was filming a motorcycle stunt on the set of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter back in September when a camera arm didn’t raise in time and her vehicle slammed into it.

“My left arm is paralyzed and is going to have to be amputated,” Olivia told The Sun. “My facial scarring is horrible and I wish I had my old face. But I’m truly grateful to be alive.”

“There is a metal arm which carries the camera along. But it malfunctioned and didn’t lift up,” a source told the outlet. “It was totally out of her control. She had no chance.”

    Sad to hear, I hope she gets better. I know its of little comfort but if she ever reads this know that your professionalism contributed in making one of the best movies in decades with Star Wars, The Force Awakens. Get Well soon.

    Glad she has a positive perspective. If you’re going to do that type of job it seems like you should. She’s probably gone up a couple of notches with her mates and others of that community. No small thing and it probably helps with the loss; sort of like a soldier earning his battle scar. Just hope her insurance will look after her and her facial scarring can be fixed or made bearable with time.

    What insurance? She’s a stunt woman. Insurance premiums for such high-risk activity would go through the roof. She will spend the money she saved or rely on donations. In her line of work losers are quickly forgotten. Her mates will distance themselves from her. A new stunt woman will be hired to take her place on the set.

    Too bad that no one in the news media cares enough to get an update on Olivia’s condition. It is April now and I guess that she is no longer “news worthy” … Sad state of affairs. I hope that she has healed and is recovering as well as possible…
