Laura Dern (1967 - )

Film Deaths[]

  • October Sky (1999) [Frieda Riley]: Dies (off-screen) of cancer; her death is mentioned in the on-screen text at the end of the movie.
  • Inland Empire (2006) [Nikki Grace/Susan Blue]: Stabbed in the stomach with a screwdriver by Julia Ormond on the sidewalk; she staggers down the street and dies several minutes later while a homeless woman (Helena Chase) talks to her. After her death, a film crew is revealed, and Laura gets up and walks out of the studio. (Due to the film's surreal nature, it's open to interpretation as to whether her "death" was just a film-within-the-film sequence, or whether the death was real and her "actress" persona is just a fantasy or an afterlife experience.)
  • Wild (2014) [Bobbi Grey]: Dies (off-screen) of terminal cancer. Her body is shown in her hospital bed when Reese Witherspoon comes in to see her. She is seen periodically by Reese with her face obscured throughout the film.
