“Game Of Thrones” Editor Killed By Lion

Katherine Chappell, a visual effects editor on HBO’s “Game Of Thrones”, was killed in South Africa Monday after a lioness mauled her to death.

US Magazine reports:

The Game of Thrones cast and crew are mourning one of their own. Katherine Chappell, a visual effects editor on the HBO series, was mauled to death by a lion in Johannesburg, South Africa, on Monday, June 1.

Chappell, 29, was in Africa at the time to raise money for organizations that protect animals from poachers, NBC News reports.

While taking photos from a car, she was killed when a lioness entered through an open window.

Chappell posted about her travels via Instagram, and shared one from the airport on May 25. “So long Canada! Next stop London!” she captioned one pic. On May 27, she shared another photo of herself drinking a mojito in South Africa.

“[She] was very much loved and shared her love for life with those she met,” Chappell’s mom Mary, dad Jon, and siblings wrote via Facebook. “[She was a] brilliant, kind, adventurous and high-spirited woman.”

The New York native had lived in Vancouver, Canada, since 2013, and was employed at the production company Scanline. She also worked on The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), Divergent (2014), and Godzilla (2014).

Wow! So sad.
