The actor admitted 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 remembered something that happened on-set in the past.

“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 worked as Pratt’s stunt double in different movies, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and two of the Jurassic World films. He was Pratt’s stuntman also in the 2016 drama Passengers.
