James McAvoy (1979 - )

Film Deaths[]

  • The Pool (Swimming Pool: Der Tod feiert mit) (2001) [Mike]: Stabbed with a machete in the stomach/chest by John Hopkins while crawling through a ventilation shaft.
  • Bright Young Things (2003) [Simon Balcairn]: Commits suicide by sticking his head in the stove after turning on the gas, after telephoning in a libelous story to his editor.
  • Inside I'm Dancing (2004) [Rory O'Shea]: Dies (off-screen) of respiratory failure due to muscular dystrophy. We last see him talking to Steven Robertson in the hospital, followed by a scene of James' funeral.
  • The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (2005) [Mr. Tumnus, the Faun]: Turned into stone by Tilda Swinton; he is later restored by Aslan's (voiced by Liam Neeson) powers. (It's arguable whether this could be considered death-and-resurrection or simply suspended animation, but since it's been suggested, I'll go ahead and list it.)
  • Atonement (2007) [Robbie Turner]: Dies of septicemia in Dunkirk while waiting to be shipped back home. His body is shown in a flashback when Vanessa Redgrave reveals what happened to him. 
  • The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008) [Mr. Tumnus]: McAvoy does not appear in this movie, but it's revealed that her character 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.
  • Filth (2013) [Bruce Robertson]: Commits suicide by hanging himself; the film smash cuts to credits as his neck snaps.
  • Trance (2013) [Simon]: Mortally wounded when Rosario Dawson drives a car into James as he is about to kill Vincent Cassel in another car that he's set on fire, crushing him between them (setting him on fire in the process), and knocking the other car and James (who is standing on the roof) into the Thames river.
  • Atomic Blonde (2017) [David Percival]: Shot in the head by Charlize Theron after being injured with gunshot wounds inflicted by Theron earlier.
  • Submergence (2017) [James More]: Accidentally killed in an airstrike.

Video Game Deaths[]

  • Twelve Minutes (2021) [Husband]: With Jame's character stuck in a time loop, he only dies once in the main story: (Loop 1): Strangled to death by Willem Dafoe, as Daisy Ridley looks on in horror. He survives in the rest of the time loops. (His death is undone when everything rests twelve minutes earlier).
