Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev, Paul Dano, Wendi McClendon-Covey, Eddie Kay Thomas, and director Jake Scott are a few of the film and TV names lending their support to the cause in a new “Safety For Sarah” PSA created to draw awareness to on-set safety following the February death of Midnight Rider camera assistant Sarah Jones.
Jones died February 20 in a train collision on the set of Gregg Allman biopic Midnight Rider in Georgia. Her death is still under investigation by state authorities. The tragedy sparked a grassroots call for increased safety and accountability on film and TV sets particularly on Facebook, where the Slates for Sarah page collected photo tributes in memory of Jones with slogans like “We Are All Sarah Jones” and “Remember Sarah.”
