Biography of Taylor Hickson
Taylor Hickson is a Canadian-born singer and film actress. She began her career as a teenager. She was remembered by the audience as Petra from Adam Kane’s dramatic thriller “Academy of Death”. She also starred in Martin Blue’s Earth Chestnut Hunt, for which she was awarded the Whistler Film Festival Award in the Rising Star nomination.
Childhood, first roles
Taylor was born in the winter of 1997 in the small Canadian town of Kelowna, located on the shores of the picturesque Okanagan Lake. She is the eldest of the four children of Russell and Shannon Hickson. All siblings’ names begin with a “T”: Taylor, Tianna, Tyson, and Tiernan.
Taylor Hickson as a child
From the age of two, the girl began to sing, as her father, a folk musician, wanted to do. When the girl was just born, he abandoned his career, but taught his daughter music. Later, when Taylor was 11 years old, she and her dad began to travel to talent shows and music competitions – the man dreamed that one day their duet would become famous. Taylor learned to play the guitar and piano, but she was more interested in an acting career.
Hickson graduated from high school as an external student. She later recalled that she was not interested in what her classmates were doing, studying only distracted her from her main goal: to become a famous actress. At one of the performances, Taylor attracted the attention of an agent, a friend of her aunt, who persuaded her to go to an audition for an acting agency.
Taylor started her career as a musician
Hickson soon landed a small role as an outraged teenager in Daniel Alfredson’s American psychological thriller Come With Me. The girl was fascinated by the famous actor Anthony Hopkins, who played the main villain.

Soon, Taylor signed up for acting classes and constantly participated in castings. In 2016, she got the role of Megan Orlowski in Tim Miller’s action comedy Deadpool, followed by Brianna Copeland in the fantasy Canadian TV series Aftermath. Remembering this role, the actress noticed that her character is very similar to herself:
She is very outspoken, sarcastic social. She is the belligerent version of me. I am impressed by her impatience, impulsiveness, her stubbornness and her character … She loves hard and unconditionally, just like me.
Bernice got her first lead role in Martin Blue’s Canadian drama Hunting Pignut. Her character goes in pursuit of Earth Chestnut, played by Joel Thomas Hynes. The film was highly acclaimed by critics and received an award at the Arizona International Film Festival. Taylor was nominated for Best Actress of the Year at the Leo Awards and won the Whistler Film Festival Award in the Rising Star category.

In 2017, three films with Hickson’s participation were released at once. In Rusty Nixon’s thriller The Remainder, she played Angelina Harding, the daughter of a private detective who falls into a terrible diary. With all who had the misfortune to touch him, there are strange and dangerous metamorphoses. The next picture is Stella Mega’s melodrama “The Whole World”, where the actress got the role of Kaira.
Taylor Hickson in the TV series Aftermath
Taylor’s participation in Pascal Laugier’s horror film Ghostland, where she played the young Vera, turned out to be a tragedy. The actress worked on an episode where she had to knock on a glass door with her hands. It seemed to the director that she was doing this without expression, and he ordered her to knock harder. Hickson asked if it was dangerous, but she was assured that everything was fine.
With another blow, the door shattered, and the girl lost her balance and fell face down on the glass. The cuts and abrasions were horrendous, and she received more than seventy stitches in the hospital. The Canadian sued the film company and was not present at the premiere of the picture.
Unfortunately, Taylor Hickson partly repeated the look of the heroine from the movie poster.
By a strange coincidence, the movie poster depicts Taylor as a porcelain doll with a broken and cracked face. The photo was invented long before the shooting and the tragedy that happened. On the face of the girl left a scar, which, most likely, will remain for life. Taylor worried for a long time that the scars on her face would interfere with her future career, but a year later, Keith Berman’s drama Little Giants with her participation was released, and then she appeared in Adam Kane’s dramatic thriller Death Academy.
