While we all love a good movie death, it turns out some of Hollywood’s famous faces are more used to shuffling off this mortal coil than others. Everyone is used to seeing Sean Bean dispatched in a variety of brutal ways, but you might be surprised to learn he isn’t the most-killed movie actor of all time — in fact, he doesn’t make the top 10.
Even though the honour of being the most-killed actor of all time might sound like an odd one, it’s definitely a way to up your presence in the industry. If you’re ready for a grim look at Tinseltown, place your bets on who has been offed more than anyone else.
The ‘Movie Mortality’ infographic comes courtesy of Buzz Bingo and confirms Machete star Danny Trejo has the most movie deaths of all time. The description explains, “Some actors are an unfortunate magnet for on-screen deaths, while others have the bad luck of appearing in particularly deadly flicks.
“We used cinemorgue and IMDb to find out which actors are the most prone to dying on-screen, and which movies and years across cinematic history are the deadliest.”
Although Trejo is known as the seemingly indestructible Machete from Robert Rodriguez’s grindhouse series, he’s met his maker in everything from Con Air to Anaconda, From Dusk Till Dawn to Rob Zombie’s Halloween. Trejo has become a firm favourite of the horror circuit with an impressive 65 deaths over the years.
