Liam Neeson in Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace

Liam Neeson (1952 - )

Film Deaths:

  • Excalibur (1981) [Gawain]: Killed (off-screen), presumably by Robert Addie or his men. His body is shown afterwards when Paul Geoffrey sees Liam's horse run by with his body tied to it. (Note: Although Paul identifies the body as Liam's character, the "body" we see is obviously an unconvincing stunt double.)
  • Krull (1983) (Dragons of Krull; The Dungeons of Krull; Dungeons and Dragons) [Kegan]: Killed in combat against the slayers (he dies while talking to the remaining survivors.)
  • The Mission (1986) [Fielding]: Shot dead by Portuguese soldiers during the battle on the river; his body remains in his canoe as his Native comrades continue rowing downstream, eventually taking it over the edge of a waterfall.
  • Schindler's List (1993) [Oskar Schindler]: Dies (off-screen) of liver failure; the movie ends with an epilogue at the real Oskar Schindler's grave, as the cast and several of the actual people saved by Schindler pay their respects.
  • The Grey (2011) [John Ottway]: Presumably mortally wounded in a battle by the alpha wolf. After the closing credits, he is shown lying on top of the dying wolf; while his fate is unconfirmed, the chances of his survival are extremely slim.
  • Unknown (2011) [Dr. Martin Harris]: Liam goes into a four-minute long cardiac arrest after Diane Kruger saves him from drowning in a river. He gets revived by paramedics and is in a four-day coma.
  • Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013) [History Channel Host]: Possibly killed along with his news team when Will Smith calls in an airstrike to carpet bomb the whole park the news teams are all fighting in. (It's not established who is killed in the airstrike and who survives, but I will list this just in case.) (Played for comic effect.)
  • Khumba (2014) [Phango (Voice)]: Playing a African Leopard; he is crushed to death when a slab of rock, followed by a boulder fall on top him of him after he falls from a cliff after it gives way during a fight with Khumba (Voice of Jake T. Austin)
  • The Prophet (2014) [Mustafa]: Voicing an animated character; executed by shooting (off-camera). We learn his death after a loud firing sound and Salma Hayek's reaction.
  • A Monster Calls (2016) [The Monster/Conor's Grandfather]:"Conor's Grandfather" dies (off-screen) of unspecified causes sometime before the film starts. He only appears in a photo.  Liam also plays the voice of "The Monster" in the film. ("The Monster" survives the film.)

TV Deaths:

  • The Late Show with Stephen Colbert: Ethan Hawke/Sen. Claire McCaskill & Sen. Amy Klobuchar/Nathaniel Ratcliff & the Night Sweats (2015) [Mr. Toffee]: Begins the skit during the live-action "Candy Crush: The Movie" skit already having been impaled by a candycane. He spends the rest of the skit talking to Stephen Colbert and presumably dies after the skit ends. (All played for comedy.)

Video Game Deaths:

  • Fallout 3 (2008) [James]: Poisoned when Liam causes a radiation leak in order to prevent Peter Gil from obtaining his scientific findings; he dies after speaking to the player character.
