Emma Thompson (as Margaret Strauss) in Dead Again

Emma Thompson (1959 - )

Film Deaths[]

  • Dead Again (1991) [Amanda 'Grace' Sharp/Margaret Strauss]: Playing a dual role in the movie's two time periods, "Margaret" is stabbed repeatedly with a pair of scissors by Gregor Hesse (who stages the scene to look like her husband did it). The murder is shown in silhouette, and her body is shown afterwards when Kenneth Branagh discovers her. ("Grace" survives the movie.)
  • Carrington (1995) [Dora Carrington]: Commits suicide by shooting herself in the chest with a shotgun; we hear the shot after the scene cuts away, and her body is not shown afterwards. (Thanks to David)
  • I Am Legend (2007) [Dr. Alice Krippen]: Presumably dies (off-screen) of the genetically-engineered virus she created; her fate is unconfirmed (her only appearance is in a TV interview discussing the virus at the beginning of the movie), but considering how few survivors there are, it seems likely that she died.
  • Brideshead Revisited (2008) [Lady Marchmain]: Dies (off-screen) of an unspecified illness.
  • Alone in Berlin (2016) [Anna Hampel]: Executed (off-screen) by guillotine in the Plötzensee Prison. Her and Brendan Gleeson death are mentioned in the closing text.
  • Beauty and the Beast (2017) [Mrs. Potts]: Playing a human turned into an anthropomorphic teapot, Emma becomes inanimate due to the curse taking full effect when the last rose petal falls. She is resurrected in human form when Hattie Morahan undoes the curse.

TV Deaths[]

  • The Young Ones: Bambi (1984) [Miss Money-Sterling]: Killed in a (comical) explosion when Adrian Edmondson throws a grenade at her team during a game show; we only see a flash of light and smoke, then four empty seats where her team had been.
  • Wit (2001 TV) [Professor Vivian Bearing]: Dies of ovarian cancer in her hospital bed while a team of doctors unsuccessfully attempt to resuscitate her. (Nudity alert: Topless)
  • King Lear (2018) [Goneril]: Stabbed through the heart offscreen by her sister Emily Watson, whom she has poisoned. Their bodies are brought into the castle on a cart. (Thanks to Brian)
