Production on Deadpool 2 began again on Wednesday, EW has learned, two days after a stuntwoman died on the film’s Vancouver set.

The woman, identified as Joi “SJ” Harris, died Monday from injuries sustained after performing a motorcycle stunt on the Deadpool 2 set. According to PEOPLE, Harris was a Brooklyn, New York, native who billed herself as “the first licensed African American women in U.S. history to actively compete in sanctioned motorcycle road racing events.”

Ahead of filming resuming, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds led a moment of silence for Harris. As seen in the below video from TMZ, he stood at the center of a group of crew members, who bowed their heads as the actor shared a few words.

On Monday, Reynolds released a statement saying the cast and crew were “devastated” and sent condolences to Harris’ family.

“Today, we tragically lost a member of our crew filming Deadpool,” he wrote on Twitter. “We’re heartbroken, shocked, and devastated … but recognize nothing can come close to the grief and inexplicable pain her family and loved ones must feel in this moment. My heart pours out to them — along with each and every person she touched in this world.”

Director David Leitch also responded in a statement, saying, “I’m deeply saddened by the loss of one of our stunt performers today. No words can express how I and the rest of the Deadpool 2 crew feel about this tragedy. Our thoughts are with her family, friends and loved ones in this difficult time.”

Vancouver Police said Monday that the British Columbia Coroners Service and WorkSafeBC, the province’s workplace safety agency, were investigating the incident.

Deadpool 2, also starring Josh Brolin and Zazie Beetz, is scheduled for release on June 1, 2018.

News of production resuming was first reported by Deadline.
