Hollywood stars enjoy a luxurious lifestyle few Americans will ever come close to attaining.

That doesn’t mean they’re immune to the dangers of the real world though.

And this Pirates of the Caribbean actor was killed in a brutal, bone-chilling attack that left fans utterly mortified.

Surfing in dangerous waters

Popular pro surfer, Hawaiian lifeguard, and actor Tamayo Perry, who had a role in one of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” films, was tragically killed in a shark attack.

The Associated Press reported that the 49-year-old Perry was killed while surfing on June 23.

The deadly shark attack took place off Mālaekahana Beach on Oahu’s North Shore, according to Shayne Enright of the Honolulu Emergency Services Department.

First responders were dispatched just before 1:00 P.M. last Sunday to respond to a call about a man who apparently had been the victim of a shark attack.

According to KHON-TV, Perry was paddling his surfboard out to Goat Island when he was bitten more than once by a shark.

A surfer then found his body and took him to the island.

Perry’s body was then returned to Oahu by personal watercraft.

“Tamayo was a legendary waterman and highly respected,” Honolulu Mayor Rick Blangiardi said during a news conference.

“It’s just a tragic loss,” he added.

And Kurt Lager, acting ocean safety chief said, “At this time, we can confirm that it was one of our own city and county of Honolulu lifeguards, North Shore lifeguard Tamayo Perry.” 

“Tamayo Perry was a lifeguard loved by all. He was well-known on the North Shore. He’s a professional surfer known worldwide,” he continued.

A beloved icon

“Tamayo’s personality was infectious, and as much as people loved him, he loved everyone else more. Our condolences go out to Tamayo’s family and to the entire lifeguard ohana,” he said.

The World Surf League posted a tribute to Perry, saying, “We are deeply saddened to share that the surf community lost a beloved icon yesterday. A well-known surfer and lifeguard, Tamayo Perry, passed away after injuries from a shark attack that occurred on the East Side of Oahu.”

Enright noted that Perry had worked as a lifeguard since July 2016.

“As you can imagine, this is a very extremely difficult time for all of us, and I ask for your kindness and your patience as we all just try to get through this next hour into these next weeks and months,” Enright said during the news conference.

In addition to his appearance as a pirate in 2011’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Perry appeared in Hawaii Five-O in 2020 and in the 2002 surfing film Blue Crush.

He also was a stuntman in the 2004 film “The Big Bounce.” 

Perry lived a full and exciting life and clearly made a positive impression on everyone he met.
