‘Walking Dead’ cast mourns death of stuntman John Bernecker


"The Walking Dead" cast and others around Hollywood are mourning the loss of stuntman John Bernecker, who died Thursday night after a fall on the show's Georgia set.

"Can't stop thinking about John Bernecker," tweeted Jordan Woods-Robinson, who plays Eric Raleigh on the hit zombie drama. "All of my love and hopes for solace goes out to his loved ones and our community."

The stuntman had been working since 2009 and had appeared in a number of films and TV shows, including "24: Legacy," "Logan," "Into the Badlands," and so many more. He was often employed on AMC shows like "Turn: Washington's Spies." "Turn" actor Samuel Roukin said that Bernecker was a "professional who made a career out of making other people look good."
