The Actors Who Have Died the Most Onscreen

There are some actors who appear die more than others whenever they show in a film. Whether it’s the characters they play or the script just thinking the audience wants to see them die, I’m not sure, but this group of guys just can’t seem to stay alive in movies. You might think the reigning champ is Sean Bean up there, and he does clock in at 25 deaths onscreen, but he’s not. There’s someone with FORTY. Read on to see who populates the list…
