Olivia Jackson is an actress and a stunt performer who has been very busy in the world of entertainment since her introduction into the business back in 2009.
Her list of credits as a stunt performer was increasing year on year with performances in Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers Age of Ultron and Mad Max Fury Road all as a lead double.
In 2015 she was working on the last instalment of the Resident Evil franchise entitled Final Chapter when an accident occurred during filming.
Riding a motorcycle Olivia was to drive past a camera car at speed but this sadly ended in a collision which caused life threatening injuries.
Following the incident, Olivia was put into an induced coma, she also suffered head injuries, a punctured lung and facial scarring. Perhaps most alarming was the injuries sustained to her back and arm. Her spine was bent and twisted causing terrible pain and discomfort. Her neck had fused making her unable to keep her had upright.
Her left arm was left paralysed and ultimately had to be amputated. She had a ‘pain transmitter’ implanted onto her spinal cord to help with phantom arm pain.
She has suffered the most dreadful and traumatic experience in such a short space of time.
Something has to be done and we as a community are standing with Olivia to make sure this never happens again.
We are creating a fundraising platform to assist Olivia with basic requirements. Requirements which should be provided by the film company but sadly are not.
Olivia Jackson is a truly amazing human being who has gone to the extremes for the film world. Now its our turn to give back to her.
