* Creator/MamoruMiyano is a mild example if ''Manga/DeathNote'', ''HighSchoolOfTheDead'', and ''Anime/TekkenBloodVengeance'' are anything to go by.

Websites such as [[http://cinemorgue.wikia.com/wiki/Cinemorgue_Wiki Cinemorgue]] help compilate which actors are bound to this.



-->'''Honest Trailers''': Ride along on an adventure where any lead character can die, whether you're Sean Bean, [[spoiler:Sean Bean's wife, Sean Bean's best friend, Sean Bean's son, Sean Bean's daughter-in-law, Sean Bean's family dogs, or Sean Bean's unborn grandkid.]] [[ArcWords All men must die]]...who are in any way close to Sean Bean!

* Music/KylieMinogue. Even though she hasn't starred in many roles, she dies in the majority of them. In ''Film/HolyMotors'', she is DrivenToSuicide; in ''San Andreas'', she is among the casualties of an earthquake; in ''Cut'', she is slashed to death. Not to mention her role in a special ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode, ''Voyage of the Damned'', where her character dies as well, and her role in the video of ''Where the Wild Roses Grow'', where she is killed by Music/NickCave's character.

* Creator/RobertDeNiro, [[http://www.moviefone.com/2010/12/27/which-actors-have-died-the-most-in-movies/ who had died on-screen 14 times by 2010]]. It's usually due to being either the villain (''Film/CapeFear, Film/{{Heat}}'') or someone with a hard life that caps accordingly (''Film/TheMission, Film/MaryShelleysFrankenstein'').



* Creator/JohnnyDepp started his career [[Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet1984 being killed by Freddy Krueger]]. He followed it by playing protagonists with plot relevant deaths (''Film/DeadMan'', ''Film/{{Transcendence}}'', the second ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean''), historical figures bound to die (''Film/PublicEnemies'', ''The Libertine''), {{Villain Protagonist}}s who earn their deaths (''Film/TheAstronautsWife'', ''Film/{{Sweeney Todd|TheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet}}''), or [[DeadStarWalking small roles just to bite it]] (''Film/TwentyOneJumpStreet'', ''Film/IntoTheWoods'').



* Creator/LanceHenriksen, [[MoneyDearBoy who works a lot]], and often doesn't get to end, helped by often playing the villain. Even in an animated role, as he voices Tarzan's gorilla father in [[Disney/{{Tarzan}} the Disney movie]] and is shot by the bad guy.



* Bill Paxton, who's essentially never played a character that's survived him appearing in anything with Michael Biehn, and holds the distinction of being killed by an ''[[Film/{{Aliens}} Alien]]'', a ''[[Film/{{Predator 2}} Predator]]'', '''and''' ''Film/TheTerminator'' (Creator/LanceHenriksen is the only other person to share the title). Like Tom Cruise, he dies many times during ''Film/EdgeOfTomorrow''. Then there's ''Film/NavySeals'' and ''Film/{{Tombstone}}''. Granted, if Michael Biehn's not in the movie, his characters don't die nearly as often (one notable exception being ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD''). He was even shot and killed at the end of ''Series/{{Big Love}}'', in which he played a family man who owned a home improvement store.

* Creator/MichelleRodriguez tends to pick roles of the VasquezAlwaysDies kind, although she now has a few aversions, two because the franchises went on long enough that she got resurrected.

* Kevin Durand has a few under his belt too: Film/WalkingTall, Film/SmokinAces, Film/ThreeTenToYuma (2007), Film/IAmNumberFour, Film/ResidentEvilRetribution, ''Film/{{Noah}}'' (2014), among others. Although not actually seen, it is heavily implied Fred Dukes was killed by Sabretooth in Film/XMenOriginsWolverine.

* British actor Creator/JamieBamber, who has had so many of his characters get killed off (''ten'' at last count) that they're apparently running out of ways to do it. ''Six'' have been shot--Tom from ''Ghost Rig'', Tony Dewhurst from ''Series/TheScarletPimpernel'', Mitchell Hoban from ''Series/{{Outcasts}}'', Vincent Plowman from ''Series/TheMessengers'', Archie Kennedy from ''Series/HoratioHornblower'', and Matt Devlin from ''Series/LawAndOrderUK''. The final two even died in an eerily similar manner--BloodFromTheMouth and HeroicSacrifice, prompting a commentator in one of the show's forums to snark, "Jamie looks pretty good dying onscreen. As well he should, he's done it so many times already." And the other four? Two of them (on ''Series/ColdCase'' and ''Series/GhostWhisperer'') were ''[[PosthumousCharacter already]]'' dead when the show started, the third (on WebVideo/StarTrekContinues) was outright made a RedShirt (prompting ''their'' commentators to wonder if the producers were outright trying to poke fun at this trend), and the fourth, the titular ''John Doe: Vigilante'', died after taking a CyanidePill. His appearances on ''Series/{{House}}'' and ''Series/RizzoliAndIsles'' just barely subverted this, having his character become very ill on the first show and fall from a bridge in the second, only to recover/be rescued in the next episode.
