Norman Reedus, Austin Amelio, Jordan Peele Remember ‘Walking Dead’ Stuntman John Bernecker


Refresh for updates: The Walking Dead cast members and Get Out director are among those mourning the loss of 33-year-old stuntman John Bernecker today, with Jordan Peele, Norman Reedus and TWD co-star Austin Amelio offering remembrances on social media.

“I have absolutely no words,” tweeted Amelio, the TWD actor who reportedly was on-set and sharing a scene when Bernecker fell to his death Wednesday. “My heart is absolutely broken…”

“You will be missed,” Reedus writes. TWD star Jeffrey Dean Morgan tweeted, “Deep sorrow today, and for every tomorrow.”

Jordan Peele, who hired Bernecker for stunt work on Get Out, tweeted, “He was so nice, so cool and great at his job.”

Bernecker’s credits also include the upcoming Black Panther as well as Logan, and The Fate of the Furious, Looper, among many others, and actors from series including Turn and 24: Legacy recall their friend’s work as their doubles.

Kellan Lutz, who was doubled by Bernecker on the film Love, Wedding, Marriage, calls him “one of the best most talented stuntmen I have ever been blessed to work with.”

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

Deadline will update this post as additional remembrances arrive.
