* On the same vein as Christopher Lee, another two horror legends are ranked pretty high in the death count, Creator/BelaLugosi (who even in ''Film/Plan9FromOuterSpace'', a [[FakeShemp fake posthumous role]], has his character bite it) and Creator/VincentPrice (dies even in [[Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective animated]] [[Film/TheThiefAndTheCobbler roles]]).



* Creator/JohnHurt has died over forty times in his career, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHk-ooDV2HE as attested by a video on his official YouTube channel.]] Even when he didn't die, he often [[HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows lived up]] [[Series/DoctorWho to his name]]. [[http://nerdist.com/does-sean-bean-really-die-more-than-other-actors/ The research linked atop this article]] has him as the highest death count, and that Hurt and Sean Bean have about the same proportion of being killed on screen (a third of their roles, which in Hurt's case is over 120 movies!). This is even lampshaded in his cameo in ''{{Film/Spaceballs}}''.
--> '''Kane''': [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHbT6BjFvcA "Oh no. Not again..."]]



* Creator/BenFoster, due to frequent villain roles: ''Film/{{Hostage}}, Film/ThreeTenToYuma, Film/TheMechanic, Film/ThirtyDaysOfNight, Film/{{Warcraft}}''...



* Creator/JohnHurt has died over forty times in his career, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHk-ooDV2HE as attested by a video on his official YouTube channel.]] Even when he didn't die, he often [[HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows lived up]] [[Series/DoctorWho to his name]].

* Creator/JohnHurt has died over forty times In 2016, Creator/FelicityJones appeared in his career, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHk-ooDV2HE as attested by a video on his official YouTube channel.]] Even when he didn't die, he often [[HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows lived up]] [[Series/DoctorWho to his name]]. This is even lampshaded three movies: ''Film/{{Inferno}}, Film/RogueOne'' and ''Film/AMonsterCalls''. She doesn't survive any of them (although in his cameo the third, she dies offscreen, aside from a fatal fall while appearing in ''{{Film/Spaceballs}}''.
--> '''Kane''': [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHbT6BjFvcA "Oh no. Not again..."]]
a nightmare sequence).



* Creator/MadsMikkelsen made his Hollywood debut getting killed in ''Film/KingArthur''. He's ever since emassed villains who die, a return to his home Denmark only to get beheaded in ''Film/ARoyalAffair'', and a sympathetic role in ''Film/RogueOne'' also not saving him. While the title character of ''Series/{{Hannibal}}'' is presumably SavedByCanon, the series still ends with Mikkelsen falling down a cliff.

* Joe Pantoliano (probably best known as Cypher from ''Film/TheMatrix'') gets killed in most of his major film roles and quite brutally on ''Series/TheSopranos''. The chronologically-reversed Christopher Nolan film ''Film/{{Memento}}'' even ''starts'' with his character's brains blown out!

* If she's not ''the'' lead performer, there's a good, if not 100%, chance that Creator/SueShiomi will die in her movies (particularly if it's an actioner), as seen in ''Film/TheStreetfighter'', ''The Franchise/Streetfighter's Last Revenge'', ''Film/Golgo13: Kowloon Assignment'', ''Shogun's Ninja'', and ''Film/LegendOfEightSamurai''. Usually her death is a result of [[VasquezAlwaysDies being an]] ActionGirl [[VasquezAlwaysDies in a film that also features a more feminine supporting character]].

* [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_Lok-lam Law Lok-lam]] is probably the TropeCodifier in UsefulNotes/HongKong that [[http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/tv-and-radio/hong-kong-actor-dies-five-times-in-24-hours-20110411-1dag4.html he 'died' five times in different dramas in a 24-hour period]] ''only by coincidence''...Though this can be justified by the fact that he has played a lot of roles for many years, and the company he works for has a shortage of elderly actors at that time period.

* When his role is more substantial than a cameo, MeatLoaf gets killed quite a bit. In ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'', it happens close to dinner. With an icepick.

** There was a character named "Shawn Bawn" in ''Webcomic/{{Erfworld}}''. He's been a type of undead called "Decrypted" since his introduction except in flashbacks/prequels/interquels, but in the forums, it wasn't considered a question of ''if'' he would die ("re-die"?) so much as ''when''.
