Gary Oldman in State of Grace

Gary Oldman (1958 - )

Film DeathsEdit

  • State of Grace (1990) [Jackie Flannery]: Shot several times in the stomach by his brother (Ed Harris) on the pier at night. His body is shown again during his funeral.
  • Immortal Beloved (1994) [Ludwig von Beethoven]: Dies of cirrhosis; it's been a while since I've seen this movie, but I believe his death was shown at the beginning, with previous events in his life being shown in flashbacks throughout the movie.
  • Leon (1994) (The Professional; The Cleaner) [Norman Stansfield]: Killed in an explosion when Jean Reno sets off the grenades strapped to his own chest, after Gary shoots Jean in the back.
  • The Scarlet Letter (1995) [Rev. Arthur Dimmesdale]:
  • The Fifth Element (1997) [Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg]: Killed in an explosion when one of his alien henchmen activates the bomb and destroys the space station.
  • Lost in Space (1998) [Dr. Zachary Smith]: Sucked into a time vortex and torn apart, after being transformed into a CGI spider-creature. This future version of the character is later prevented from coming about due to time-travel; the "present" version of Gary survives the movie.
  • Quest for Camelot (1998; animated) [Sir Ruben]: Killed by a supernatural force after being tricked into returning Excalibur to its stone.
  • A Christmas Carol (2009; animated) [Jacob Marley/Bob Cratchit]: Playing multiple roles, "Jacob Marley" dies (off-screen) shortly before the story begins; his body is shown afterwards lying in a coffin, and he appears as a ghost to Scrooge (voiced by Jim Carrey).
  • Rain Fall (2009) [William Holtzer]: Shot in the head off-screen. His body is shown laying on a couch with a bullet hole in his forehead.
  • The Book of Eli (2010) [Carnegie]: Presumably dies (off-screen) of blood poisoning/infection after being shot in the leg by Denzel Washington. His actual death isn't confirmed, but his fate is heavily implied when Jennifer Beals tells him the wound is infected. NOTE: There is a deleted scene where he dies in bed due to his wound with Jennifer by his side. 

TV DeathsEdit

  • Screen Two: The Firm (1989) [Bex Bissell]: Shot to death by Philip Davis.

Video Game DeathsEdit

  • True Crime: Streets of LA (2003) [Rocky / Agent Masterson]: Playing a dual role, "Rocky" is burned to death after Russell Wong destroys his plane in the good ending of the game. In the average ending, he is shot in the back by Michelle Rodriguez while preparing to stab Russell. In the bad ending, he is hanged by North Korean Army commandos. "Agent Masterson" survives the game.
  • The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon (2008) [Ignitus]: Providing the voice of a dragon, he is incinerated by flames after sacrificing himself to save Elijah Wood and Christina Ricci. He later returns as a spirit.
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops (2010) [Viktor Reznov / Dr. Clarke]: Playing a dual role, "Viktor Reznov" is killed (off-screen) by Russian soldiers while escaping from prison; he appears as a hallucination to Sam Worthington throughout the game. His death is revealed when Ed Harris and Gene Farber inform Sam. "Dr. Clarke" is shot in the head by a Russian soldier while Ed is attempting to pull him to safety.
