Those who knew and worked with stuntman John Bernecker are still reeling from his tragic death after falling on the set of The Walking Dead earlier this week.

The accomplished stuntman, who had previously worked on Logan, Black Panther, The Fate of the Furious, and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, fell more than 20 feet onto concrete while filming for season 8 of the AMC series at Raleigh Studio in Georgia. He sustained massive head injuries and was airlifted to Atlanta Medical Center, where he was placed on a ventilator. TMZ reported that he died Thursday evening.

AMC temporarily shut down production on The Walking Dead while SAG-AFTRA, the union that represents stunt professionals, investigates the accident. Meanwhile, many of Bernecker’s peers have taken to social media to express their condolences. 

“Can’t stop thinking about John Bernecker,” said Jordan Woods-Robinson, who plays Eric on TWD. “All of my love and hopes for solace goes out to his loved ones and our community.”

“It was a pleasure to know and work [with] you,” tweeted J.D. Evermore, who plays Harley. “May your soul now rest in peace, good, kind sir.”
