Bill Paxton (1955 - 2017)

  • Paxton is the only actor to be killed by an Alien, a Predator, and a Terminator. (while Lance Henriksen also died in all three franchises, the one in Alien 3 did not occur right after the Alien attack)
  • Was present at President John F. Kennedy's final speech at Fort Worth, Texas on November 22, 1963.

Film DeathsEdit

  • The Terminator (1984) [Punk Leader]: Thrown against a fence with superhuman force by Arnold Schwarzenegger. (The "bodycount" in the IMDB's trivia section for the movie says that Bill was only knocked out, but I'm listing it with this disclaimer because I'm sure people would point out its omission.)
  • Aliens (1986) [Private William Hudson]: Killed by an alien when it bursts through the floor as he attempts to hold them off (with Michael Biehn trying to hold onto him as he is dragged underground). 
  • Near Dark (1987) [Severen]: Burned to death by sunlight (there is an alternative scene when he is burned to death or killed in an explosion when Adrian Pasdar causes the truck they're in to jack knife and crash). 
  • Predator 2 (1990) [Detective Jerry Lambert]: Killed by the Predator (Kevin Peter Hall) on a subway train while attempted to face Kevin with a machete (after shooting him to no effect). His body is later seen when Maria Conchita Alonso discovers his corpse hanging from the ceiling of the subway car by its feet. His body was lastly shown in the subway tunnel when Kevin tears out Bill's head and spinal column from his body as Danny Glover witnesses his mutilation. 
  • True Lies (1994) [Simon]: Neck snapped after Arnold Schwarzenegger punches him in the face while he's talking about how attractive he finds Arnold's wife (Jamie Lee Curtis); this is revealed to be a day dream Arnold is having while talking to Bill. (Played for comic effect.) (Paxton survives the film in reality)
  • A Bright Shining Lie (1998) [Colonel John Paul Vann]: Killed in an explosion when his helicopter gets shot down. (Thanks to Robert and Gary)
  • U-571 (2000) [Lt. Cmdr. Mike Dahlgren]: Dies from injuries received in an explosion when a torpedo struck his submarine (his body is later seen floating on the ocean surface). (Thanks to Robert and Gary)
  • Frailty (2001) [Dad Meiks]: Hacked to death with an axe by his son (Matt O'Leary) (he dies while talking to his younger son Jeremy Sumpter). (Thanks to Robert and Gary)
  • The Colony (2013) [Mason]: Commits suicide when shooting propane tank, taking out most of the monsters.
  • Term Life (2016) [Detective Keenan]: Presumably murdered off-screen by Jordi Mollà, for Bill killing Jordi's men earlier. The scene shows Jordi's men taking Bill away in a van promising that something bad is going to happen to him.
  • Mean Dreams (2016) [Wayne Caraway]: Shot in the chest by Sophie Nélisse, as he tries to reason with her. He dies shortly afterwards with Nélisse crying be his side.

TV DeathsEdit

  • Hatfields And McCoys (2012) [Randall McCoy] As an elderly man, he is burning a box of old cuttings and photos in the fire when his sleeve catches fire. Panicking, he ends up knocking an oil lamp on the floor and the cabin goes up in flames. (Thanks to Brian)

Music Video DeathsEdit

  • "Love Tap" (1982) (Barnes & Barnes music video): Thrown down a flight of stairs by Annerose Bucklers, after being beaten up by her throughout the video. His body is shown lying in his coffin in the funeral home when he suddenly comes back to life and strangles her. (This video was available on the 1987 VHS compilation tape Barnes & Barnes: Zabagabee.)
