The American tourist who was recently attacked to death by lions in South Africa has been identified as Hollywood visual effects editor Katherine Chappell, according to People.
Chappell was part of the production crew for several episodes of Game of Thrones, as well as Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Divergent.
The woman was reportedly attacked while riding and taking pictures in an SUV at Lion Park.
Plans have been announced by her family to lay her to rest on Sunday while her sister, Jennifer has thanked the public for their support. She wrote on Facebook, “We cannot thank everyone enough for the kind words and support. It means the world to us during this difficult time. Her energy and passion could not be contained by mere continents or oceans. She was very much loved and shared her love for life with those she met.“
Scott Simpson, assistant operations manager at Lion Park told the Associated Press, “They had their windows all the way down, which is strictly against policy. The lion bit the lady through the window.”
