Voice-over artist Randy Schell, known for his work on Fear the Walking Dead, passed away on July 8.
The actor was involved in a parachuting accident in Houston, Texas.
Skydive Spaceland, the centre where Schell had visited before his passing said in an official statement that Schell and one other skydiver collided mid-jump, which then caused Shell’s parachute to collapse.
According to Deadline, “Two licensed, experienced skydivers accidentally collided following a planned group skydive,” reads the statement.
“Both jumpers had made at least one successful skydive earlier that day, had hundreds or thousands of skydives each, and were jumping their own parachute systems.”
"Both jumpers deployed their parachutes normally and collided afterward,” the statement continues. “They sustained injuries in the collision and/or on landing, and one did not survive. Weather was not a factor.”
Following the sad incident, the actor's agent, Jenny Josby, spoke to KHOU 11 News about her deceased client. “He had a golden voice, he knew what to do with it,” she said. “He was a constant professional. Everyone loved working with him."
Josby added of Schell: “He was also a brilliant producer and engineer. He was a great friend, a great man and a great client.”
The vocal artist worked for almost 25 years lending his voice to well-known brands like 20th Century Fox, Coca Cola, Geico, McDonald’s, Nike.
