Film DeathsEdit

  • Richard III (1995) [Richard III]: Shot to death by Dominic West during a battle atop a wrecked building; the movie ends with a shot of Ian smiling as he falls into the flames below. (Obviously, this bears no historical account of the real Richard the Third's death).
  • Apt Pupil (1998) [Kurt Dussander]: Commits suicide by blowing air/inhaling gas into his IV tube, infecting his chest; he dies shortly afterwards while the doctors try to save him.
  • Beauty and the Beast (2017) [Cogsworth]: Playing a human turned into an anthropomorphic clock, Ian becomes inanimate due to the curse taking full effect when the last rose petal falls. He is resurrected in human form when Hattie Morahan undoes the curse.

TV DeathsEdit

  • Hamlet (1970 TV) [Hamlet]: Dies after being wounded with a poison-tipped sword during a duel (the IMDB listing for this movie doesn't state who played Laertes in this version).
