Casey Michaels, a stuntwoman who worked on ‘Game of Thrones’, has sued the makers of the hit HBO series. Casey says he sustained permanent injuries from the filming of a fight scene.
The stuntwoman worked on the eighth and final season in 2018 and had to climb a castle during a fight, according to Variety . She had to fall from the roof along with other stuntmen, landing last on cardboard boxes and mats. With so many people to jump on, everything would have shifted and they would have landed wrong.
Casey says she broke her ankle and has had multiple surgeries and physical therapy in recent years. Due to the injury, she says she can no longer practice certain sports and can no longer perform her work as a stunt woman. She therefore demands compensation of almost 5 million dollars, converted 4.7 million euros.
