‘Star Wars’ Stuntwoman to Have Arm Amputated After ‘Resident Evil’ Set Injury

Olivia Jackson was in a coma for two weeks earlier this year after hitting a metal camera arm while filming a motorcycle chase sequence for the upcoming action-horror sequel

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” stunt woman Olivia Jackson will need to amputate her arm after getting seriously injured on the set of “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.”

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

Jackson crashed into a metal camera arm in September while shooting a high-speed motorcycle chase on the Johannesburg, South Africa set of the sequel. She was induced into a coma at the time, and detailed her injuries on Facebook in October.

“2 weeks in a coma, brain bleed, brain swelling, severed main artery in the neck, crushed & degloved face, several broken ribs, paralyzed arm, shattered scapula, broken clavicle, broken humerus, broken radius & ulna, with an open wound and a 7.5 piece of bone missing, amputated thumb, torn fingers, 5 nerves torn out of the spinal cord…. not my funnest day on set,” she wrote.

Jackson has also appeared in “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Guardians of the Galaxy.”

Screen Gems, the distributor of the “Resident Evil” films, has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
