Doubling for actress Zazie Beetz, motorcycle road racer Sequana Joi Harris died while filming a scene for Deadpool 2. On her very first day as a stuntwoman, Harris was driving a bike in downtown Vancouver in Canada when she lost control of the vehicle, hit a curb, and was thrown into the Shaw Tower. She died on the scene.

Harris was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident because Beetz’s character, Domino, does not wear one in the scene being filmed, and there hadn’t been enough time to create one for her to fit underneath the character’s wig. Though veteran stunt double Melissa Stubbs was available and willing to do the stunt during the filming, the inexperienced Harris was preferred due to her skin color being a match for Beetz. The film’s credits include a dedication to Harris.
