Ruskin's death

Cary Elwes in Kiss the Girls

Cary Elwes (1962 - )

Film Deaths

  • The Princess Bride (1987) [Westley]: Is temporarily "mostly dead" after Chris Sarandon turns the torture device to full power. His body is shown afterwards when Mandy Patinkin and Andre the Giant discover him, and he is brought back to life after Billy Crystal prepares a miracle pill which Mandy and Andre force down Cary's throat.
  • Glory (1989) [Major Cabot Forbes]: Possibly killed (off-screen) while charging the Confederate fort; the scene ends with the soldiers running towards a cannon, which then fires. Cary's body is not shown among those being buried in a mass grave, so it's unconfirmed whether or not he survived the battle.
  • The Jungle Book (Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book) (1994) [Captain William Boone]: Eaten alive by the giant python Kaa in a subterranean pool after being dragged beneath the water by his backpack due to having heavy treasure items (as King Louie and the other monkeys look on).
  • Twister (1996) [Dr. Jonas Miller]: Killed in an explosion when his vehicle is picked up by the tornado and then thrown to the ground.
  • The Informant (1997) [Lieutenant David Ferris]: Killed in an explosion by a bomb planted on a motorcycle.
  • Kiss the Girls (1997) [Detective Nick Ruskin a.k.a. Casanova]: Shot in the head by Morgan Freeman (firing through a carton of milk to eliminate the muzzle flash) when Cary threatens to blow up the gas-filled house.
  • Race Against Time (2000) [Burke]: Shot in the chest by Sarah Wynter after Cary tries to shoot her, on top of falling through an elevator roof.
  • The Cat's Meow (2001) [Thomas H. Ince]: Shot in the back of the head by Edward Herrmann, who had mistaken him for Eddie Izzard (his body is later seen as Edward arranges the scene to make it appear he died of a heart defect).
  • Comic Book Villains (2002) [Carter]: Shot repeatedly in the chest by Donal Logue while Cary is lying on his back on the ground; we hear their conversation and the gunshots over the opening scene, and the shooting itself is shown later on when the movie "catches up" to that point.

TV Deaths

  • The Riverman (2004 TV) [Ted Bundy]: Executed (off-screen) in the electric chair; his death is mentioned in the voice-over narration.
