'The Walking Dead' Voice Actor Dies in Tragic Skydiving Accident

'The Walking Dead' Voice Actor Dies in Tragic Skydiving Accident”

Close friend and fellow skydiver Chuck Akers witnessed the collision, saying that it "was the equivalent of stepping off the curb and not seeing the bus coming". The two divers, who were in the sky with a group of other skydivers, both sustained injuries, although Schell's, unlike the other jumper's, were fatal. He was one of eight people who participated in the formation skydive on Saturday.

Both jumpers had reportedly completed a successful dive earlier in the day.

Skydive Spaceland, the center from where Schell went on the excursion, said in a statement that Schell and another skydiver collided mid-jump, causing Shell's parachute to collapse. "These are gliding parachutes, so the moment they open they begin moving forward, like they're created to do. It opened, unfortunately, facing the other jumper".

Though his face might not be instantly recognizable, Schell's distinct voice sure is, as he leaves behind a lengthy resume that includes voice work for hundreds of commercials.

Schell's agent, Jenny Josby, spoke to KHOU 11 News shortly after the actor's passing to rave about her late client.

"He was a constant professional".

Akers called him "the most unfamous, famous guys on the planet".

Schell provided the voice for promos for "The Walking Dead."

Everyone loved working with him. "He was highly regarded as a voice actor and brilliant engineer and producer not only locally but nationally".

"You only had to hear his voice one time to know exactly who Randy Schell was". "Not just as a skydiver, but as a friend and as a coworker", said Akers.
