Driver Killed On 'Deadpool 2' Set Was Performing Her First Movie Stunt

The stunt driver - whose name has been removed from the report, a routine practice of WorkSafeBC - had been rehearsing a stunt involving driving a motorcycle, a Ducati Hyperstrada 939, out the open doors of a building, across a concrete pad and down a ramp that had been built over three stairs and coming to a stop on the stair landing. She was supposed to stop on the landing.

32-year-old Joi "SJ" Harris died on set while attempting to perform a low-speed motorcycle stunt - when her motorcycle hit the curb of the sidewalk, Harris was thrown through the glass window of a building, and died from her injuries. "She was the best candidate for the job".

"From that description, that's a pretty simple, straightforward manoeuvre", he said from Fort Worth, Tex., after being read a summary of the stunt in the WorkSafeBC report.

Joi Harris, a motorcyclist known for competing in road racing events, died in a tragic accident on Monday at Canada Place Way where the sequel was being filmed. When they returned to work, the cast and crew of 'Deadpool 2' reportedly held a minute of silence for Harris.

"She was fearless and relentless in her pursuit of her dream, to ride as a motorsports professional", said a statement posted on Harris's Facebook page Tuesday.

He went on to explain that while Kinsler wasn't suspended the fine he received was an equally harsh punishment. The precipice for the armbands is Ian Kinsler's remarks on Wednesday. "I don't care.

One witness, who was watching filming, described it as "out-of-control". "This was an opportunity of a lifetime for her", Porsche Taylor told Variety. Deadline Hollywood, an online magazine reporting on the entertainment industry, said no helmet was worn because the character in the movie was not wearing one. "Our hope is that the outcome of that investigation will provide our industry with the information we need to ensure something like this doesn't happen again".

Production on Deadpool 2 was shut down immediately after Harris' death, but picked up again a few days later.

"I know that what I feel is nothing compared to what her loved ones, friends + family, are feeling".

Deadpool 2 is set to hit theaters on June 1, 2018.

Harris, a motorcycle driver who was killed while performing a stunt for the film on Monday, was reportedly traveling at a low speed in an not overtly hard action sequence, an investigation report by WorkSafeBC revealed, Deadline reported.
