Participated in the movie Pirates of the Caribbean… A shark kills American actor Tamayo Perry

A shark attack in the Hawaiian Archipelago on Sunday, according to local authorities, led to the death of American surfer Tamayo Perry, who was known in Hollywood for his supporting roles, most notably in “Pirates of the Caribbean.”

The 49-year-old professional marine lifeguard, an Oahu celebrity, was surfing off Malikahana Beach when he was attacked by a shark in the middle of the day.

Local official Shane Enright explained in a press conference that rescue services received a report that “a surfer was fatally injured as a result of a shark attack.”

She added that his body was “transferred to the beach,” where his death was confirmed.

In turn, Honolulu Mayor Rick Blangiardi described Tamayo as a “legendary sailor,” expressing his regret for the “tragic loss.”

The former professional surfer gained fame in the early 2000s as one of the specialists in surfing the “Pipeline” type, which is considered one of the most dangerous in the world, and is characterized by the famous “Third Shore” beach on Oahu.

His fame in this field opened the door for him to participate in the surfing film “Blue Crush” in 2002, and he soon obtained other supporting roles in Hollywood.

Among the most prominent of these roles were in the movie “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle” in 2003, in the series “Hawaii Five-O” in 2011, and in the fourth part of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” film series (2011).

Hawaii often witnesses shark attacks, but they are rarely fatal. Only five people died in 81 incidents involving surfers, swimmers or divers recorded in the last 10 years, according to authorities.

A study published by the Royal Society magazine in 2021 explained that most shark bites in the world are due to their poor eyesight, which makes them believe that surfers or swimmers are their usual prey, such as sea lions.
