SYDNEY (AP) - Ron Taylor, a beloved Australian marine conservationist who helped film some of the terrifying underwater footage used in the classic shark thriller “Jaws,” has died after a long battle with cancer. He was 78.
In 1974, director Steven Spielberg asked Taylor and his wife, Valerie Taylor, to capture footage of a great white shark for “Jaws.” Spielberg used Taylor’s footage in a now-iconic scene in which the shark in the film tears apart a cage holding one of the main characters.
