It's easy to remember the actors who entertain us. We usually remember the writers, and the directors as well. It's unfair that the stunt people that make a show like TWD possible aren't recognized like they should be until a tragedy.

My condolences to his family and friends, and I appreciate that TWD shut down production for a while rather than pushing on.

I read an article saying stuntmen are typically paid around 2600 per episode they shoot. Not a ton of money for a pretty dangerous job.

I was quite shocked reading about this. Poor man and his family. :( Feels heartbreaking that someone loses his life for just a tv show. First victim of the upcoming All out war... :( I think the stunt people know the risks of their work but still...Feeling like such an unnecessary death.

I wonder how it will cause the show by the time? More secure back-ups or less of dangerous things to do? (It makes me smile somehow to imagine that they┬┤d end up with more strategic war with less actual fighting. ;) I might like that better.) I hope whatever happens, the story would still go on.
