Ryan Reynolds might be known for posting witty and sarcastic comments about fatherhood, fame and his family on Twitter, but yesterday the actor took to the social media platform to post a far more solemn note following the death of a female stuntwoman.

Earlier this week, a female stunt driver reportedly died after losing control of her motorbike while filming Deadpool 2 in Vancouver.

Eye witnesses claim the motorbike hurtled off the set and through the window of a building, reports The Telegraph.

Last night, the 40-year-old actor took to Twitter to pay an emotional tribute to the driver and her family, saying the film's cast and crew were 'heartbroken, shocked and devastated' by their loss.

Reynolds wrote in the statement: 'Today, we tragically lost a member of the crew while filming Deadpool. We're heartbroken, devastated… but recognize nothing can come close to the grief and inexplicable pain her family and loved ones must feel in this moment. My heart pours out to them -- along with each and every person she touched in this world.'

The sequel to the 2016 superhero film has been shooting since late June in Vancouver, with director David Leitch at the helm. It is unknown whether production has been postponed following the incident.

Our thoughts go out to the stuntwoman's family and the Deadpool crew during this time.
