Pirates of the Caribbean actor ‘Tamayo Perry’ killed in shark attack

Tamayo Perry, an actor from Pirates of the Caribbean, has died after a shark attack while surfing in Hawaii. The 49-year-old passed away on Sunday afternoon, as confirmed by Honolulu’s emergency services during a press conference. The incident occurred at Malaekahana Beach around 1:00 PM local time. Despite being brought to shore by jet ski, Perry, who also worked as a lifeguard, was declared dead by paramedics.

Perry played a buccaneer in the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film, On Stranger Tides, which starred Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, and Geoffrey Rush. He also appeared in Lost, Hawaii Five-0, Blue Crush, Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, and a Coca-Cola commercial. Born on Oahu’s east side, Perry had been a professional surfer for over a decade.

In his profile on Oahu Surfing Experience, where he worked as an instructor, Perry shared his adventures surfing “the world’s deadliest wave” and described himself as a “small-time island boy” who could compete with the best surfers globally. He mentioned a near-fatal accident several years ago caused by someone else’s “lack of awareness” but did not provide details.

Acting Honolulu Ocean Safety Chief Kurt Lager praised Perry as a beloved lifeguard known both locally and internationally, describing his personality as infectious. Mayor Rick Blangiardi called Perry’s death a “tragic loss,” noting his legendary status and respect within the community. Both officials extended condolences to Perry’s family and asked for privacy during their time of grief.

Mayor Blangiardi emphasized the impact Perry had on the community, highlighting his exceptional contributions as a waterman and lifeguard. He noted that Perry grew up in the area and was a vital part of the ocean safety team, well-respected and admired by many.

Local surfers and residents have been deeply affected by the news of Perry’s passing. Many have shared their memories and expressed their sorrow over social media, recounting how Perry’s skills and friendly demeanor made a lasting impression on those who knew him. His expertise and passion for surfing inspired many, and his dedication to water safety saved countless lives over the years.

A memorial paddle-out is being organized by the local surfing community to honor Perry’s life and legacy. Paddle-outs are a traditional Hawaiian tribute to surfers who have passed away, involving a ceremonial gathering in the ocean.

Honolulu’s emergency services have advised surfers and beachgoers to remain vigilant and follow safety guidelines to avoid similar incidents. They reiterated the importance of awareness and caution in the ocean, especially in areas known for shark activity.

Perry’s family has expressed their gratitude for the outpouring of support and condolences. They have requested privacy as they navigate this difficult time, and have indicated plans to establish a foundation in Perry’s name to promote ocean safety and support aspiring surfers.
