Ryan Reynolds 'heartbroken' over death of stuntwoman

Joi “SJ” Harris died after her bike crashed through the window of a tower in Vancouver

Joi “SJ” Harris died after her bike crashed through the window of a tower in Vancouver

The outlet reports that Harris began riding in 2013 and quickly rose to fame, earning many accolades in the sport.

Ms Harris described herself on her website as the "The first licensed African-American woman in US history to actively compete in AMA sanctioned motorcycle road racing events".

The cast and crew of Deadpool 2, and indeed the wider film industry at large, were left in a state of shock on Monday afternoon following the sudden death of stuntwoman Joi "SJ" Harris in Vancouver, Canada, who was killed when an on-set motorcycle stunt went horribly, horribly wrong.

Witnesses described how Ms Harris crashed through glass in Shaw Tower after performing the same stunt successfully four times.

Not quite scared, but it crosses my mind at times, but a racer can't let it stop us. there is always something to learn when on track and pushing limits.

He said: "Over the summer we heard that Philip Hammond was courageously fighting off the more extreme Brexiteers". Previously he had been downplaying the need for such a lengthy interim stage .

Harris recently addressed a question about the fear of crashing on her website. In the comics, time traveling is an integral part of the mutant's backstory and character but knowing how limited the two-hour-or-so run of a film is, fans worry that Deadpool 2 might have to tweak a few things about Cable to keep its story coherent.

Now Fox Studios and Deadpool 2 have shut down production.

Actress Zazie Beetz, who is best known for her role in the FX television network series Atlanta, was reportedly spotted driving the motorcycle, or one like it, during filming.

Her Facebook page notes the racer was still recovering from surgery in June for a broken wrist.

Actor Ryan Reynolds posted a heartfelt message on Twitter later this Monday claiming how the production is "heartbroken, shocked and devastated" following the tragic death. Cast member Josh Brolin said on Instagram, "We are mourning the death of a attractive woman who died tragically this morning on our set. And the heart breaks and will slowly mend together as time sews handsome memories honoring her".
