Dear Member,

We are saddened to inform you that stunt performer John Bernecker has passed away after sustaining an injury on the set of The Walking Dead in Georgia. John, a member of the New Orleans Local, died Friday. He reportedly fell from a balcony while rehearsing a fight scene on Wednesday. 

SAG-AFTRA sends its deepest condolences to his family, friends and colleagues. 

The safety of our members is SAG-AFTRA’s highest priority. The union will work with authorities and monitor the investigation into the incident.

In unity,
