I caught Kenneth Branagh’s Frankenstein the other day for the first time since it was released in theaters. As I saw Helena Bonham Carter set aflame for a fiery death, it struck me that last year’s Sweeney Todd marked Carter’s second death by being set on fire.
Now, no doubt there are many actors who have been twice shot and several who have been twice stabbed or twice died of disease- but for the same actor to be twice set aflame, that is something curiously remarkable.
So, what are some other examples of actors who have twice (or more) died the same unusual death?
Again, common deaths like gunshots don’t count- unless there were such a case as an actor who died twice of a gunshot delivered via a “Moe Greene Special” or some method similarly unusual.
Also, twice facing an unusual death doesn’t count- same actor who once dies in a woodchipper and once by rabid muskrat attack- it must twice (or more) be the same unusual death: twice in a woodchipper or twice by rabid muskrats.
