Domino Harvey death reactions


Domino Harvey, the inspiration for New Line’s upcoming film Domino, died in her Los Angeles home on the evening of June 27. Following are reactions to the news of her death from the film’s director and producer.

“Domino never failed to surprise or inspire me over the last 12 years. She was a free spirit like no other I have ever known.”
Tony Scott, director of Domino

“We were enormously saddened to hear of Domino’s untimely passing. She and I had been conferring about her music to be used in the film only weeks ago. I know I speak for all of us on the movie’s cast and crew when I say how much we enjoyed her presence on set when she visited. And although our film is not intended as a biographical piece, hers was the dynamic personality and indomitable spirit that spawned an exciting adventure, not just on screen, but in real life.”
Samuel Hadida, producer of Domino

Keira Knightley stars in the wild action thriller Domino, the latest project from director Tony Scott (Man on Fire, Spy Game, True Romance). A trademark Scott film, Domino presents an entertaining mix of gritty action, biting comedy and sharp visuals. The film is loosely inspired by the life of Domino Harvey, daughter of legendary actor Laurence Harvey and a former model who rejected her privileged Beverly Hills life to become a bounty hunter. Domino features a diverse ensemble cast including Mickey Rourke, Edgar Ramirez, Delroy Lindo, Mena Suvari, Lucy Liu, Christopher Walken, Jacqueline Bisset, Mo‘Nique, and Macy Gray and is scheduled for a 2005 release.
