“The Walking Dead” cast and others around Hollywood are mourning the loss of stuntman John Bernecker, who died Thursday night after a fall on the show’s Georgia set.
“Can’t stop thinking about John Bernecker,” tweeted Jordan Woods-Robinson, who plays Eric Raleigh on the hit zombie drama. “All of my love and hopes for solace goes out to his loved ones and our community.”
“I have absolutely no words,” Austin Amelio, who plays Dwight on “The Walking Dead,” tweeted. “My heart is absolutely broken…”
Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who played the villainous Negan, tweeted about his “deep sorrow” for Bernecker’s family and friends.
Show star Norman Reedus posted a tribute over on his Instagram.
The stuntman had been working since 2009 and had appeared in a number of films and TV shows, including “24: Legacy,” “Logan,” “Into the Badlands,” and so many more. He was often employed on AMC shows like “Turn: Washington’s Spies.” “Turn” actor Samuel Roukin said that Bernecker was a “professional who made a career out of making other people look good.”
Even those who never worked with Bernecker gave him a shout-out. Sarah Michelle Gellar, who said she’s never worked with the stuntman, tweeted that appreciated all the work stuntpeople do.
