During an interview with the Associated Press for Only the Brave, Brolin addressed Harris’ death saying: “We had somebody pass away on Deadpool 2 and it was an absolute freak accident.” He adds that Harris was “wonderful woman” and reiterates that it “wasn’t even a stunt” and that it was a freak accident.
“It was a terrible thing that happened,” said Brolin who plays Cable in Fox’s comic book sequel. “Was it a nano-decision that she made in order to save the bike and this, you know what I mean? You could look into it all [these ways], but sometimes things just happen that are tragic.
When the accident happened, Harris had only recently joined the film. As Deadline reported in August, Harris, the first African-American female professional road racer, was doing her first pic as a stunt performer when the motorcycle she was driving went out of control and crashed along the 1000 block of West Waterfront Road near in the Jack Poole Plaza in Vancouver.
