Top Hollywood Filmmaker, 52, Dies Suddenly From Heart Complications

Hollywood filmmaker and producer Jamie Christopher died suddenly at his Los Angeles home from heart complications at just 52, according to reports.

Christopher was known for his work as the first assistant director on all eight of the Harry Potter movies, as well as the Star Wars and Marvel films.

Marvel studio bosses Kevin Feige and Louis D’Esposito said in a joint statement:

“We are incredibly saddened by Jamie’s passing. He has been a part of the Marvel Studios team for over a decade and on productions like Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Black Widow, and more.

“He was a calm presence behind the camera and a wonderful, supportive crew member on set.

“Jamie first joined Marvel Studios as an AD on Thor: The Dark World and, because of his hard work and diligence, was upped to an Executive Producer on Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and the upcoming Fantastic Four.

“Jamie was a beloved member of our Marvel Studios family, and he will be dearly missed. Our thoughts and deepest condolences go out to his family and friends.”

Jamie is survived by his wife, Carly, their child, Killeon, and also three children from an earlier marriage – Stella, Teddy, and Phoebe, 1News reports.

The British-born director followed in the footsteps of his production manager dad, Malcolm J Christopher.

Jamie started as a production runner on Frederick Forsyth Presents in 1989 before landing the third assistant director job on Alien 3.

He then became the assistant director on The Mummy, The Mummy Returns, Golden Eye, and The Fifth Element.

Jamie then became the first assistant director of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in 2001, remaining with the franchise for all its installments.
