* TomCruise is usually an aversion, with [[http://herocomplex.latimes.com/movies/edge-of-tomorrow-tom-cruise-on-dying-for-doug-liman-in-sci-fi-thriller/#/0 an article]] noting how he only died in ''Film/{{Collateral}}'' and ''Film/{{Valkyrie}}'' (though the latter was ForegoneConclusion as it is [[HistoricalFiction based on historical events]]) ''before'' a role basically built around [[TheManyDeathsOfYou repeated deaths]] in ''Film/EdgeOfTomorrow''. (this of course ignores his DeathByCameo in ''Film/YoungGuns'', and ''Taps'', his second overall movie role, where he's riddled with bullets in a KillEmAll ending)

* Richard Beymer. Let's see: Shot in ''Film/WestsideStory'', dies in ''Film/TheDiaryOfAnneFrank'', death by andiron in ''Series/TwinPeaks'', shot again on ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine''... as a consolation prize, he achieved immortality on ''Series/TheXFiles''.

* Creator/DenzelWashington. Started his career getting killed by Creator/CharlesBronson in ''Film/DeathWish''. Won [[Film/{{Glory}} two]] [[Film/TrainingDay Oscars]] playing guys who die, and out of six nominations, only ''Film/TheHurricane'' and ''Film/{{Flight}}'' had Washington's character surviving. ''Film/DejaVu'' has the amusing variation of Denzel performing HeroicSacrifice yet still surviving due to TimeyWimeyBall.

* Creator/OscarIsaac dies an awful lot, even in cases such as ''Film/SuckerPunch'', where he is stabbed in the fantasy world but survives in reality. He even appears to be a DecoyProtagonist who apparently bites it in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' before a triumphant return.

* Creator/ChristopherEccleston almost always ends up dying in whatever movie or TV series he's starring in, so much so that this isn't really considered a spoiler anymore (from a certain point of view, even including the end of his tenure as [[Series/DoctorWho The]] [[TheNthDoctor Doctor]]). If the story is dark enough to feature character deaths, the question isn't ''if'' his character will die, just ''how''. One could easily list at least 16 death scenes of varying brutality or (rarer) characters that die off-screen. His mini-series "Blackout" is probably an intentional subversion in this regard. His character ends up deciding not to commit suicide at the very last second.

** The reaction to Sean Bean being cast as the English dub voice of the father of the protagonist from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' in the prequel movie ''[[Anime/KingsglaiveFinalFantasyXV Kingsglaive]]'' was that Square Enix basically spoiled his fate in the game proper in advance. [[spoiler:Sure enough, he dies at the end of the film which occurs concurrently with the first chapter of the game.]]
