For the most part, the dangers of shooting a movie or television show in Hollywood begin and end with people not liking the finished product. That doesn’t mean there are some times when a person has entered a set and never walked back out again. Sometimes there is something that goes terribly wrong on set. Other times, it simply a matter of a person meeting their end due to “natural causes.” There are never any expectations that these stars are going to meet their end shooting their final scenes. And sadly, there have been enough deaths on set that we could actually bring you this list of the 10 actors who died during filming of their final project.
Roy Kinnear was filming the movie The Return of the Musketeers, in Toledo, Spain. He actually had an accident on set that broke his pelvis, was taken to the hospital and had a heart attack the next day, when he finally passed away.
Vic Morrow was on set of The Twilight Zone: The Movie when he lost his life. The script required a dangerous combination of pyrotechnics and helicopters. During one of the scenes, the pyrotechnics exploded, which cut a piece off of the helicopter. This caused the helicopter to crash, resulting in the decapitation of Morrow and two children who were also in the scene.
