* The short-lived CBS action series ''Cover-Up'' had a case of this involving a death which occurred during the actual filming of the series. Jon-Erik Hexum, who played the original sidekick/love-interest to the main character, accidentally killed himself during a recording break by shooting himself in the head with a blank pistol cartridge, apparently in the belief that it would just cause a harmless bang and not realizing the serious dangers of such an act (the pressure blast from the cartridge exploding fractured his skull and forced pieces of it into his brain). The series replaced his character with a SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute and explained it by having the character die off-screen during a solo mission.

Added DiffLines:

* Narrowly averted by Zaeed Massani from the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' series: his voice actor, Creator/RobinSachs, died shortly after recording his part in the final content piece for the original trilogy, ''Citadel''. As the next game in the series features no returning characters from said trilogy, writing Zaeed out was no longer necessary, so ''Citadel'' was simply [[InMemoriam dedicated to Sachs' memory]].
