Added DiffLines:

* A literary example occurs in Creator/MaryRenault's ''The Mask of Apollo.'' The narrator Nikeratos tells of his first real acting role at the age of about seven: Astyanax, son of Hector, in Euripides's ''The Trojan Women.'' Near the end of the play he is brought onstage as a corpse, and only has to lie still ... except that at the performance, he is so affected by the speech of the actor playing Hecuba that he has to struggle mightily not to burst into audible weeping.
-->'''Kroisos/Hecuba (in an undertone):''' Be quiet, you little bastard, you're dead!

Compare PlayingATree for a similarly thankless role. See EyeAwaken, RaisedHandOfSurvival, or FingerTwitchingRevival for when the ''character'''s supposed corpse moves to reveal they're [[NotQuiteDead not as dead as previously thought]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', the actors who play Sam and Dean also act as their corpses. This is especially noticeable in the season 2 finale, "All Hell Breaks Loose pt. II". If you pay attention to Sam's body, you can see his chest rising and falling slightly.
** According to their actors, Jared had to struggle to not cry while Dean was delivering his monologue.

The problem with using a live actor is that they're a live actor. Live actors need to breathe. Either they hold their breath, the camera doesn't let you see their chest, or you get TheLivingDead when you see a corpse visibly breathe on camera. Having the corpse [[CarpetRolledCorpse concealed from view]] immediately after death can often help prevent this.
