Pirates Of The Caribbean Actor Dies In Shark Attack!

MOVIE NEWS – The actor, who most people knew from the fourth installment of Pirates of the Caribbean, was famous in surfing circles.



Pirates of the Caribbean actor Tamayo Perry has died after being attacked by a shark while surfing in Hawaii. The 49-year-old man died on Sunday afternoon, the Honolulu emergency services confirmed at a press conference. Emergency services were called to Malaekahana Beach around 1 pm local time. Perry, who was also a lifeguard, was pronounced dead by paramedics after being brought ashore on a jet ski.

Perhaps Perry’s best-known role was as one of the pirates in the fourth film of the franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

The 2011 film, in which Johnny Depp plays the eccentric pirate captain Jack Sparrow, also stars Penelope Cruz and Geoffrey Rush. Perry has also appeared in Lost, Hawaii Five-0, Blue Crush, Charlie’s Angels, Full Throttle, and a Coca-Cola commercial.

A native of East Oahu, Perry has been surfing professionally for over a decade. On the website Oahu Surfing Experience, where he worked as an instructor, he described his experiences surfing “the world’s deadliest wave”. He also said that a few years ago, he had “a freak accident that turned into a near-fatal experience”.

Perry did not elaborate on what caused the incident, but said it was due to someone else’s “lack of awareness.”

Kurt Lager, acting chief of Honolulu Ocean Safety, said Perry was “a lifeguard loved by all,” adding that he was well known on Oahu’s North Shore and around the world.

“Tamayo’s personality was infectious, and as much as people loved him, he loved everyone else more.” He added: “Our condolences go out to Tamayo’s family.” Mayor Rick Blangiardi echoed Lager’s sentiments, calling Perry’s death a “tragic loss.”

At the press conference, he said: “Tamayo was a legendary waterman and highly respected, [he] grew up right over here, and just a great member of our ocean safety team.”

He said it was “hard to imagine” getting such a call on Sunday afternoon and urged people to let Perry’s family grieve.
