    Stuntwoman Olivia Jackson, who worked on The Force Awakens, was seriously injured doing a stunt for the new Resident Evil film. She's currently in a coma.

    Daily Mail story here:

    I'm sure we all wish her a speedy recovery.

    Well that sucks.I hope she recovers. It's a sad reminder how dangerous film stunts can be and why studios do not want actors doing their own stunts.
    It amazes me they let Tom Cruise do the stuff he did for Mission Impossible!

    I think I read something about Cruise being told by an insurance company that he couldn't do a stunt so he gave them the boot and found one that would cover it.

    Good news; that sounds horrible. I'd be looking at retiring if that was me.
