WHO - - Hot Topics -

TRAGEDY STRUCK THE VAN­COU­VER set of Dead­pool 2 on Aug. 14 when stunt­woman Joi “S.J.” Har­ris was killed dur­ing a stunt. “We’re heart­bro­ken, shocked and dev­as­tated,” tweeted the film’s star, Ryan Reynolds. “But recog­nise nothing can come close to the grief and in­ex­pli­ca­ble pain her fam­ily and loved ones must feel in this mo­ment.”

The stunt driver, who billed her­self as the first African-amer­i­can fe­male road racer, re­port­edly lost con­trol of her mo­tor­cy­cle dur­ing a stunt, jumped a curb and crashed through a plate-glass win­dow. As di­rec­tor David Leitch told WHO, “No words can ex­press how I and the rest of the Dead­pool 2 crew feel about this tragedy.”
