At the end of last night’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the show paid tribute to one of their own who tragically lost his life on May 6. Crew member Joseph Teague died following a car accident.
Teague, who worked as a rigging grip on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and had 80 other movies and shows on his resume, was 45 years old.
Some of Teague’s other main credits included Sons of Anarchy and Ouija: Origin of Evil. He also worked on Life After Beth and Whiplash.
Teague was known to many as JoeTCreep, “the guy with the hat,” and according to his obituary, he was passionate about his work and generous and helpful to everyone around him.
He also reportedly “never sugarcoated anything” he had to say.
He was described as a very talented crew member who was adept at building and fixing everything.
