Actor Nick Pasqual was charged with attempted murder on Wednesday after his estranged girlfriend, Hollywood makeup artist Allie Shehorn, was stabbed multiple times.

Pasqual was charged with one count of attempted murder, one count of first-degree residential burglary with a person present, and one count of injuring a spouse, cohabitant, fiancé, boyfriend, girlfriend or child’s parent, per a press release from the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office. If convicted he could be facing a life sentence.

The document noted that Shehorn had “recently filed a restraining order” against her former boyfriend. 

Pasqual has acted in projects like “Rebel Moon,” “Poor Paul,” and “National Day Riff.” Shehorn worked on sets such as “Mean Girls,” “Rebel Moon,” and “Babylon.” The pair reportedly met on the set of “Rebel Moon.”

Shehorn was stabbed multiple times at 4:30 a.m. on May 23 at her Los Angeles home. Per the report, the perpetrator broke into her home and “inflicted great bodily injury upon the victim under circumstances involving domestic violence” and “personally used a knife during the commission of the crime.”

Pasqual was detained at a U.S./Mexico border checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, Texas, the documents said, and is being sent back to Los Angeles County for the trial. 

“My thoughts and heartfelt sympathies are with the victim in this horrific incident,” L.A. District Attorney George Gascón said in the press release.

“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.”


Shehorn is currently in recovery from the stabbing after undergoing multiple surgeries. A GoFundMe started for the makeup artist shared the update that she had been moved out of the intensive care unit and was up and walking.

“Allie Shehorn is making positive steps to her recovery,” the update said. “It’s still a very long road but she is facing it with courage and determination.”

As of Thursday morning, the fundraiser had just over $94,000 worth of donations with a $100,000 stated goal.
