Jared Harris in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Jared Harris (1961 - )

Film Deaths[]

  • Tales of the Black Freighter (Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter) (2009; animated) [Ridley]: Crushed to death by the wreckage of the ship; his increasingly-decayed body is shown throughout the film when Gerard Butler uses it as part of his makeshift raft, and later talks to Gerard in an extended hallucination sequence. (Thanks to Tommy)
  • Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011) [Professor James Moriarty]: Possibly falls to his death or drowns when Robert Downey Jr. tackles him over the edge of the balcony and into the Reichenbach waterfall; it's implied that he died in the fall, but since Robert is shown to have survived, it's possible that Jared might have survived as well. However, it’s also possible that Robert only survived due to the breathing apparatus his brother (Stephen Fry) had given him. (Thanks to Tommy and Tim)

TV Deaths[]

  • Fringe: There's More Than One Of Everything (2009) [David Robert Jones]: Sliced in half when Joshua Jackson closes the dimensional portal just as Jared is walking through it. However, when Joshua is erased from the timeline at the end of season 3, most of his actions are also erased - resulting in Jared surviving his journey through the portal.
  • Mad Men: Commissions and Fees (2012) [Lane Pryce]: Commits suicide (off-screen) by hanging himself in the office; we learn of his death afterwards when Robert Morse informs Jon Hamm and John Slattery and his body is shown afterwards when Jon, John, and Vincent Kartheiser cut him down and set him on the couch. (Thanks to Tommy)
  • The Crown: Hyde Park Corner (2016) [King George VI]: Dies of lung cancer while sleeping.
  • Chernobyl: 1:23:45 (2019) [Valery Legasov]: Commits suicide by hanging himself on the two-year anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster, the rest of the series being told in flashback from here onward. 
  • Carnival Row: The Gloaming (2019)  [Chancellor Absalom Breakspear]: Is bedridden after being stabbed multiple times in the stomach, though claims he is likely to survive before his wife suffocates him with a pillow and removes his liver.
