Chris Pratt has taken to Instagram to pay tribute to his former stunt double, Tony McFarr, who died at age 47 on Monday in Orlando, Florida.

The actor said he was “devastated to hear about the loss of my friend and former stunt double. We did several movies together. We golfed, drank whiskey, smoked cigars, and spent endless hours on set. I’ll never forget his toughness.”

Pratt recalled one such instance on the set.

“I remember he took a nasty shot to the head (in the title sequence of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2) and got several staples in his head – he came right back to work ready to go again. He was an absolute stud. He was always a gentleman and professional.”

“He’ll be missed,” added Pratt. “My prayers go out to his friends and family, especially his daughter.”

McFarr was Pratt’s stunt double in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and two of the Jurassic World films. He also performed Pratt’s stunts in the 2016 drama Passengers.
