Ryan Reynolds leads moment of silence for dead stuntwoman


Ryan Reynolds led a moment of silence for stuntwoman Joi Harris as production on Deadpool 2 resumed on Wednesday (16Aug17), two days after her death.

Harris died after losing control of her motorcycle while performing a stunt as the character Domino, played by actress Zazie Beetz. She crashed through the glass of the Shaw Tower’s ground floor studio in Vancouver, Canada.

Production was immediately shut down as officials launched an investigation into the road racer’s death, but it started up again on Wednesday morning, with the film’s star leading a brief on-set memorial.

Reynolds previously sent his condolences to Harris‘ family and friends, stating: “I’m deeply saddened by the loss of one of our stunt performers today. No words can express how I and the rest of the Deadpool 2 crew feel about this tragedy. Our thoughts are with her family, friends and loved ones in this difficult time.”

British Columbia Coroners Service officials are still conducting an investigation into Harris‘ death.
