The cast of Deadpool 2 is still in shock that a member of the crew is no longer with them.

Stuntwoman Joi ‘SJ’ Harris, known as the first African-American female road racer, died on Monday while performing a motorcycle stunt on the set of the upcoming film. Actress Zazie Beetz‘s character, Domino, is who Harris was stunt doubling for when the fatal incident happened.

Beetz took to Instagram on Thursday to mourn the loss of Harris with a touching, handwritten letter.

New broke on Wednesday that SJ wasn’t wearing a helmet while attempting the deadly stunt because there wasn’t enough time to get one specially made to fit under her wig.

Filming of Deadpool 2 has since resumed.
