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.

* In universe in ''Series/{{Friends}}'', Joey has done this three times. The first time was when he was hired to play a dying man in a film starring Creator/JeanClaudeVanDamme. After several ruined takes, the script was simply altered to that the guy was dead instead. The second time occurred when Joey was on ''Series/LawAndOrder'' as a murder victim, but the scenes where he was shown alive were cut, so all we see is his body covered with a white sheet being carted out on a gurney. Finally, when he was rehired by ''Series/DaysOfOurLives'' where his character was still in a coma several years after falling down an elevator shaft. It's lampshaded by Susan Sarandon's character who exclaims "That was ''a person''?!".

* An in-universe example in ''Series/ThirtyRock'', when Jenna Maroney is cast as a corpse in a police procedural, but being a GiantHam goes off book and ad libs being NotQuiteDead, to the point of trying to set up a spinoff for her nameless victim character.

* Creator/UweBoll's [[Film/AloneInTheDark2005 adaptation]] of ''Franchise/AloneInTheDark'' had a character get killed, and as the heroes were leaving her body the actress starts getting up a split second before the camera cuts as if the scene was over.
