If convicted as charged, the maximum sentence is life in state prison. An arraignment date is TBA.

“My thoughts and heartfelt sympathies are with the victim in this horrific incident,” Gascón said in a statement. “Our office, including our Bureau of Victim Services, extends our support and resources to her as she embarks on the long and difficult journey of healing from both the physical and emotional trauma inflicted upon her. This heinous incident is a stark reminder of the dangers of domestic violence. We will ensure that the individual responsible for this egregious act is held accountable for their actions.”

Pasqual and Shehorn met when he was a background actor on Rebel Moon. He also has appeared in numerous small films and guested on such TV series as Archive 81, American Gangster: Trap Queens and One Dollar and was part of the sketch-comedy and podcast troupe National Day Riff.

PREVIOUSLY, May 28: Veteran makeup artist Allie Shehorn was reportedly stabbed by an ex-boyfriend more than 20 times in her home on May 23. Shehorn suffered gashes to her neck, arms and across her abdomen during the assault. She miraculously survived before being rushed to the hospital to undergo multiple surgeries.

The wounded Shehorn was bleeding out when she was discovered by Christine White, her surrogate mother, at about 4:30 a.m. Thursday.

“I found her and I had to go into the bedroom where it happened,” White told KTLA. “That wasn’t a pretty sight.”

Shehorn — who worked on both parts of Rebel Moon as well as Babylon, the recent Mean Girls remake and BET+’s The Rich and the Ruthless — was admitted in critical condition before being moved out of the ICU today. Friend Jed Dornoff said the 35-year-old makeup artist has limited use of her hands after the attack. He posted a photo of a surprisingly upbeat-looking Shehorn and White in the hospital.

Shehorn’s assailant, against whom she had reportedly just obtained a restraining order due to domestic violence, fled the state after the alleged attack. He arrested in Texas near the Mexican border, according to multiple reports citing law enforcement.

According to friends, her assailant is a background actor whom she met on the set of Rebel Moon.

A GoFundMe page has been set up by friends to help with hospital bills and what will likely be a lengthy rehabilitation process.

Shehorn is a member of IATSE 706 Makeup Artists & Hair Stylists Guild.
