A young actor associated with the hit series Outer Banks tragically lost his life in what’s reported as a hit-and-run accident. 22-year-old Alexander “AJ” Jennings, who served as a stunt double for star Chase Stokes, lost his life this week, and his co-star took a chance to respond to the accident.

It appears that Chase Stokes was a big fan of Alexander Jennings and excited about what was ahead for the young actor. Jennings will undoubtedly be missed amongst the Outer Banks cast. Alexander Jennings had friends throughout the Outer Banks cast, and that Netflix offered grief counseling to those on the set of the Netflix series that need it. Obviously, this is a tragedy that people don’t see happening, so it’s understandable if his friends and coworkers need some help, and hopefully the resources provided will benefit them.revealed that AJ was struck by two cars in Charleston, South Carolina, on July 5. “It is with great sadness that I share on Tuesday Alexander ‘AJ’ Jennings’ mother informed me of his tragic death. Outer Banks crew & cast suffered a terrible loss when AJ was stuck by two cars, that fled the scene early this morning,” the post read. The casting agency went on to call AJ a “beautiful, kind soul & a bright light every day on set.”

According to the Facebook page, AJ moved from New York to Charleston, South Carolina, to work as a photo double and stand-in for the character of John B, played by Chase, 29, on the upcoming third season of Outer Banks.

“I cannot fathom the shock and tragedy of AJ’s sudden loss and our thoughts are with his family and friends during this difficult time. I understand this message may be difficult to process for those of you that met & became fast friends with AJ,” the post continued. “Netflix HR has grief counseling available, please reach out to me by email or text and I can get you the information. I am still at a loss of words how this happened & cannot imagine the pain his family is going through.
