Prosecution over Ford injury

I wonder if this has anything to do with Ford not featuring in future films?

Hope not, Harrison Ford seemed really relaxed about it in interviews saying it was an accident. Hate to think of Han Solo going all health and safety on the Falcon.

I don't think this will be Ford but if the HSE is going to go after production companies making action films at Pinewood everytime there's an accident how many will just go elsewhere :x

Part of the investigation process is to learn from mistakes and to ensure processes are followed and if need be improved.
Next time it could be worse. I don't think this is a celebrity thing. It's the world we live in.

No, there have been numerous actors, stunt personnel, and others injured throughout 2014 and 2015

Harrison Ford was injured on-set

Olivia Jackson (Daisy Ridleys original stunt woman) was injured, whilst filming another film in South Africa
As a result her left arm had to be amputated
Hence why Chloe Bruce took over as Daisy Ridleys stunt woman in 2015
