Deadpool 2 star Zazie Beetz, who will play Domino in the upcoming film, offered a heartfelt note offering condolences to the family of Joi “SJ” Harris.
On Monday we tragically lost one of our own – Joi SJ Harris. My heart has been breaking the past two days and I have been searching what to say or do. I know that what I feel is nothing compared to what her loved ones, friends + family, are feeling. My heart and my love goes out to her and them all. The cast and crew send peace, healing, and their deepest condolences.
Harris was believed to be Zazie Beetz stunt double.
