Julie Benz in Dexter: The Getaway

Julie Benz (1972 - )

Film DeathsEdit

  • Darkdrive (1997) [Julie Falcon]: Killed in an explosion when she opens a picnic basket with a bomb planted inside, as Ken Olandt looks on helplessly. She later reappears as a virtual-reality simulation; the "virtual" Julia is shot by Claire Stansfield in the virtual-reality world, but is later recreated. (Thanks to James)
  • Shriek If You Know What I Did Last Friday the Thirteenth (2000) [Barbara Primesuspekt]: Dies from an allergic reaction to a bee sting (causing her face to swell up) while running away from the killer. (Played for comic effect.)
  • Bad Girls from Valley High (2005) [Danielle]: Dies of old age in the hospital, after being rapidly aged (along with Nicole Bilderback and Monica Keena) by the drugged chocolates that Janet Leigh had prepared for them. She appeared as an angel in Heaven. (Thanks to James)
  • Circle (2015) [The Wife]: Killed by a beam of energy after the other captives vote to eliminate her.
  • Havenhurst (2016) [Jackie]: Strapped to a table then cut to pieces with a handheld electric rotary saw by Douglas Tait. Not much is shown; Douglas is shown swinging the saw down at Julie, then the camera switches to a closeup shot of Julie's face as she screams and her blood begins flying. The camera then cuts away entirely.

TV DeathsEdit

  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Angel (1997) [Darla]: Stabbed in the chest with a wooden arrow by David Boreanaz; her body then turns to dust. (She later returned to life in subsequent episodes.) (Thanks to MainMan, Pat, Germboygel, and Jude)

  • Satan's School for Girls (2000; TV movie) [Alison Kingsley]: Struck by lightning, along with four other women, during an occult ritual. (Thanks to Matt)

  • Dexter: The Getaway (2009) [Rita Morgan]: Bleeds to death (off-screen) after John Lithgow cuts her femoral artery in her bathtub. Her body is shown afterwards when Michael C. Hall discovers her and their son crying in her blood. (Thanks to Stephen, Tamra, James and Kim)
  • Dexter: My Bad (2010) [Rita Morgan]: Her body is shown again in this season-opening episode. (Thanks to Stephen)
  • Defiance: Upon the March We Fittest Die (2015) (deleted scene) [Amanda Rosewater]: After being severely wounded when an alien slashes her stomach completely open, Julie's wound is closed by Trenna Keating, who warns her not to move from her clinic bed or the wound could reopen. However, when Jaime Murray, Anna Hopkins and others are captured by aliens and taken away to be eaten alive, Julie forces herself to leave the clinic and manages to save them by shooting the aliens to death. In the aired version of the episode, the scene ends here. In a deleted scene on the DVD/blu-ray set, however, the scene is extended. It shows that Julie's stomach wound has reopened and is heavily bleeding. She then collapses to the ground and bleeds to death. Jaime and Anna attempt to save her but she dies too quickly for medical assistance.
