  • The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008) [Mrs. Beaver]: Dawn does not actually appear in this movie, but it's revealed that her character (she provided the voice of a CGI-animated beaver) had died of old age during the passage of time since the previous movie The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.) (Thanks to Augustin)
  • Coraline (2009; animated) [Miss Forcible/Other Miss Forcible]: Playing a dual role in the two realms, "The Other Miss Forcible" is killed (along with Jennifer Saunders) when a swarm of bat-winged dogs lured over by Dakota Fanning collides with them at high speed.
