Seeing a post on Facebook about Sean Bean having been killed in movies/tv a total of 20 times, has me wondering who might compete with him for having the most movie/tv deaths?

It's interesting that when I was looking at some sites for movie deaths, Robert De Niro was at the top of the list, on one site with 14, while Sean Bean on 2 sites was listed with 5, but one of those sites adjusted it to 20, and there is a YouTube entry which lists Sean Bean's movie/tv deaths, so I'm guessing this updated count is recent, and very probably the sites which list movie/tv deaths are way behind in counts.

My guess for one star who would be high on that list is Christopher Lee. In the Dracula movies alone he has a high count, and add to that other horror movies he's done, where he has died in several, and even his career in the 80s...oh, that might not count.


Who would you think has a high death count in movies/tv?

Do you have any counts?

Robert De Niro has died 14 times. In fact,after he was killed by Al Pacino in "Heat" he then killed Pacino in "Righteous Kill".

I'm afraid I don't have a running count of the times she's died in her films but Linnea Quigley seems to get offed in most of them.

I'd imagine Lon Chaney Jr. had quite a few.

If the death doesn't have to be on screen, you could argue for Private Wilhelm, originator of the Wilhelm Scream. 225 movies and counting!  TongueOut

I don't know about "the most," but one actor who's always caught my eye is Paul McCrane, a character actor who's always getting killed off in horrendous ways.

In "RoboCop" he was "Emil," otherwise known as the guy who got covered in toxic waste and then splattered by a speeding truck...

...then in 1988's remake of "The Blob" he was the local-yokel cop who gets snapped in half...

...then he played "Leonard Betts" in an "X-Files" episode of the same name, in which he was beheaded... but his body continued walking around without it...

...and his character on "ER," Dr. Romano, lost an arm to a spinning Medevac helicopter blade in one episode, then later on was crushed to death when the same copter fell off the hospital roof and landed on him.

That's gotta be some kind of record!!!

I was actually thinking on the subject of character actors being killed off a lot, of course because they are in so many movies. Geoffrey Lewis, for instance, is very recognizable by appearance because he has probably been in over 300 movies, and with substantial roles, but not being a starring actor he's not very recognizable by name. Though with so many movie roles, he's had to have died in movies a lot just from the numbers alone.

There are those character actors and bit actors who get roles for something they are seemingly good at, or get trapped into. I know there was one who was on a talk show calling himself the king or master of the "don't blinks"; his roles are often uncredited but he usually get's a line like "It's going to blow!" and is onscreen for like only 2 seconds for that one moment.

And I guess that, like Paul McCrane, there are actors who die real good. Lucio Fulci once made that comment about an actress who usually dies in any film she's in of his as he proclaimed "She dies real good."

He was probably talking about Daniela Doria. In a recent italian publication about Fulci, she was the only one who denied the interview, unlike many other actors, producers and various people who worked with him.  Bluesad

Didn't Robert Englund die at least 8 times as Freddy Krueger?

Plus any other movie he's done.

Porn star Ron Jeremy tends to almost always get killed when he stars in a mainstream film.

Not sure what films Ron Jeremy has done outside of Troma Films.

In every Troma film he dies or is horribly disfigured.

Michelle Rodriguez dies in almost every movie she's in because she favours female roles in action movies where she gets to play someone who can kick ass and doesn't have to deliberately play into straight male sex fantasies. Unfortunately, this means that she has to die so that the more feminine-looking, physically weaker, and less intimidating lead action chick can save the day.

Bill Paxton's characters don't have a great survival rate.

About the only movie I can think of where Bruce Dern lives is FAMILY PLOT. He was the go to guy for grisly deaths, dying graphically in MARNIE, HUSH HUSH SWEET CHARLOTTE, THE ST. VALENTINE'S DAY MASSACRE, THE INCREDIBLE TWO HEADED TRANSPLANT, THE COWBOYS, etc.

FUN FACT: Bruce Dern's godmother was Eleanor Roosevelt and his godfather was Adlai Stevenson.
